Are you ready to take to the stage in Austin and show the world (or at least fourteen music executives, five dedicated fans, and three people who have arrived early to be in the from row for the band following you) what you are made of? Good, because it’s time to get your application in to play at Southby Music.
Like last year, the SXSW Music Showcase Applications will be powered by Sonicbids. Your Electronic Press Kit can be submitted to site for the early deadline of October 15th 2012 (and it’ll cost you $30), or you can press your luck and hold on till the deadline-deadline of November 7th 2012 (and the processing fee will jump to $40). You must use Sonicbids, there are no alternative routes to applying (unless you’re Art Garfunkel, in which case you might get away with asking nicely).
Full details are on the SXSW website, with extra details on the dedicated Sonicbids page.
