How to sing at SXSW Music

Saturday, June 22nd, 2013

More dates for your diary now. If you’re ready to perform a showcase at SXSW Music 2014, then it’s time to start getting your audition ready.

Once more, the SXSW Music team will be using Sonicbids exclusivly to accept submissions (unless you’re Paul McCartney, I suspect Paul could just phone up and ask nicely). Submissions open up on July 9th, with ‘early’ registration ending on September 6th, and a hard deadline of October 11th. Note that all these dates are a month or so earlier than last year.

More details and links can be found at the official SXSW site.

Sunday, November 4th, 2012

This time of year is deadline central for anyone looking to head to SXSW. Today’s heads-up is for anyone thinking about performing at SXSW Music. You need to get your submissions to showcase in Austin into the SXSW office by midnight Austin time this Wednesday, the 7th November.

This is the final-final deadline for SXSW Music, miss this and you are not playing SXSW (although I suspect an exception would be made if you are Jeff Beck).

As we’ve described before, you’ll need to register with SonicBids to if you want one of the showcase slots. Start the application process here.

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.

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).
