SXSW is a festival that was created to celebrate the up and coming artists and unsigned hype talent of the year. We’ve loved attending every year because it has allowed us to play our part in discovering who has next! That hasn’t changed! While we will always throw our support to the current heavy hitters we still want to be a part of breaking those emerging artists who have voices we think you all should hear!
During our daytime showcase, acts will perform block party style to a room of their peers and industry professionals such as DJ King Tech and Sway from “The World Famous Wake Up Show” (on Shade 45) as we celebrate artists to watch in 2014.
The showcase will have performances by several artists off of the AllHiphop.com Top 50 of 2013 Artist List as well as special surprise performances and appearances from AllHipHop.com alumni. SXSW attendees can come network with Hip-Hop royalty as we celebrate good music and birthdays too! Chuck Creekmur, Grouchy Greg Watkins and Skyyhook will share their birthday cake with the masses as they bring the SXSW crowd into their own birthday celebration as well!
Great music…great people…and a little something sweet to eat too! What could be better?! We hope to see you there!
