We have so many reasons to be very happy about attending SXSW this year! Not only is there a record number of Nordic acts scheduled for official SXSW showcases, many have never performed in the U.S. before. We are also thrilled to partner with the inititive Nordic Music at SXSW, a new body that, like Nordic Spotlight, are dedicated to promoting the excellent music of the Nordic countries abroad.
As part of our collective dedication, there are three Nordic acts showcasing at SXSW that are getting extra-special attention from us this year: EDM/Rap duo Uyarakq x Peand-eL (GL), indie rockers Small Time Giants (GL/DK), and music avant-garders Sturle Dagsland (NO). They’re all scheduled to perform several shows, and will play on the same lineup at FLOODfest’s Nordic Music Brunch on March 16th at Cedar Street Courtyard (SXSW badges only). It’s going to be a great show, with food and drink, so carve out time for this must-see show if you can.
If you can’t make it to SXSW this year, we’ll be there to cover the event on our social channels (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube) so you don’t miss a thing. It’s gonna be a great festival for Nordic music!
