Bez, 2face to rock SXSW in Texas.


Every March, thousands of young, jeans-wearing techies, filmmakers and musicians descend upon Austin, Texas, harboring dreams of getting noticed and hitting it big. They come not just for the balmy weather or the Tex-Mex food but for South by Southwest, a collection of conferences and festivals that's considered one of the most influential happenings on the annual cultural calendar.

The first South by Southwest Music Conference and Festival (SXSW) was held in 1987 in Austin, Texas. The music event has grown from 700 registrants in 1987 to over 16,000 registrants. As Austin has grown and diversified, film companies and high-tech companies have played a major role in the Austin and the Texas economies.


When you attend SXSW this coming March you can look forward to experiencing the music of acts such as Nigeria's super sun crooner, Bez and the award winning RnB sensation, Tuface Idibia alongside 400 artists across the globe. The event is slated for March 13-18 in Austin, Texas.

Other African acts scheduled to perform are Dela Botri & Hewale Sounds (Accra GHANA).
Dama do Bling (Maputo MOZAMBIQUE), and LIRA (Johannesburg SOUTH AFRICA).

See SXSW website for the full list.
