Every year the Fader Fort at SXSW is the place to be before official SXSW showcases open their doors. This year all SXSW attendees are invited, because SXSW has made The Fader Fort an offical SXSW party. That means if you have a badge there is no need to RSVP to the fort this year. The Fader Fort will open its doors starting March 14th and offer showcases by Santigold, Black Hippy, Zola Jesus, and more to be annouced! You can check out all the details below and I hope to see you at this year’s Fader Fort.
Here is what Fader had to say:
We’ve teamed up with Converse and SXSW to build The FADER FORT Presented by Converse and are heading to Austin, Texas to host our annual four-day showcase. Today, we’re stoked to announce that Santigold, all four members of the Black Hippy collective and Zola Jesus will perform. Stay on top of more lineup announcements, coming soon, by following FADER on Twitter and joining our mailing list.
An official SXSW event for the first time this year, the FORT runs from March 14th till March 18th. FORT wristbands (with RSVP, to be posted in the coming days) and festival badge-holders will be admitted.
The FADER FORT Presented by Converse is made possible this year by Nokia, Bushmills Irish Whiskey, vitaminwater, Beats by Dre, Robertas Pizza, Stumptown Coffee Roasters, SiriusXMU and Southwest Airlines. Can’t make it down? Watch a live stream of the entire show from Fuse.
