The SXSW Music Festival 2016 is ready to welcome its new guests this year!
According to tradition set in 1987, the South by Southwest (SXSW) Conferences and Festivals will be holding its annual music festival that promises to bring a lot of talented Korean artists once again! The SXSW events will be held in Austin, Texas as usual, and take place from March 11th till March 20th. The two annual events, K-Pop Night Out and Seoulsonic have finally unveiled the line-ups!
K-Pop Night Out, an annual K-pop concert hosted by Korea Creative Content Agency (KOCCA), will be having its fourth year with SXSW. The concert will take place at The Belmont on March 16th. The guests will have an opportunity to enjoy the craziest performances from R&B singers Zion.T with The Session and DEAN, IDM and electronic music producer Haihm, K-pop stars MAMAMOO, indie rock band Love X Stereo and ’80 glam&metal band Victim Mentality that have already performed at SXSW last year (We also did an interview with the band last year, which can be checked out HERE). The schedule for this year’s K-pop Night Out was revealed to be the following for now (be mindful of any possible changes to the final schedule!):
K-Pop Night Out Concert:
