What We’re Looking For in Your Showcasing Artist Application

August 12, 2021 Hailey Hess

It’s time to show us what you’ve been working on at home and hop on a stage to show the world in March. This season’s South by Southwest Music Festival will be a glorious reunion for musicians and fans to celebrate what Austin does best: live music.

Whether this is your first rodeo or you’ve been on the scene, our festival is for you. We invite artists from all over the world to perform in front of industry professionals and hungry fans, connect with fellow musicians, celebrate the power of music, and discover new paths for their careers.

We know gathering your things and hitting send can feel like a shot in the dark but we are here to help. We asked the people who will be going through thousands of applications like yours what they are looking for. Here’s what they said.
