Happy first week of February! I’ve never been good at keeping information to myself, so I might as well share this week’s addition of Showcasing Artists and Music Speakers. Plus, you’re just dying to know who to look for once SXSW is here, right?

This week’s batch of music-focused Conference programming consists of our Mentor Sessions, where you’ll have the opportunity to meet with the faces of the music industry, such as Jennifer Masset of Spotify and Michael Addicott of Pandora. We’re also excited to announce we’ll be providing a variety of Talk20s, where our speakers cram presentations, covering topics from how to grow your platform to artivism, into 20-minute sessions.

Our Showcasing Artist announcement includes a little something for everyone. Rockers, treat yourself to the sounds of Frankie Rose and Protex. Psych fans, turn your ears towards The Bright Light Social Hour. Start the party with the flowing beats of Alex Wiley, then wind down to the soothing voice of Mark Eitzel.

A final announcement for all music lovers: the SXSW Film Festival has released its Features Lineup, which includes the screening section 24 Beats Per Second. Discover the world behind music through our selection of documentaries!

If you can’t wait until March for the music, tune into SXSWfm and our weekly Spotify playlist to get an early taste of the SXSW experience.

If you can’t wait for SXSW Music events, we don’t have a way to access those ahead of time, but register today and you can attend our sessions, showcases, parties, and many more events in person next month!
