Get ready, it’s almost time for SXSW 2020!

Each year, the household name South By Southwest conference and festival constantly expands the perspectives of artists, visionaries, and leaders in the tech, film, and music industries. As the “premier destination for discovery,” SXSW celebrates what is next to come in the entertainment sector. Besides hosting networking events for seasoned and new professionals, the event also holds cherished competitions and an award ceremony honoring some of the most innovative tech companies. 

We are thrilled to be attending again this year! And of course, we are looking forward to the best part of the event: the music festival that showcases over 2,000 artists of all genres, new and established. Here we will meet up with a roster of past clients and celebrate our recent HIPsters that will showcase at SXSW. This year, the SXSW Music Festival will take place from March 16 to 22.

Jeremie Albino is a gentle, charming, and soulful folk-pop Canadian rocker. A decade of farm work gave him the time and space he needed to hone in on his songwriting, and his stories of romance and ambition represent his pure outlook on life.

What happens when you combine a flexible and fearless musician with the guitarist of The Smashing Pumpkins that explores uncharted territories? You get the collaborative project between Mindy Song and Jeff Schroeder, Night Dreamer. The merge of dream pop and occasional rock fury brings a kaleidoscopic sound with intense lyrical intricacy.

Fusing online success and street credibility, TisaKorean is a verified viral phenomenon. The hip-hop sensation was greeted with success after each release. He even worked with Chance the Rapper on “Groceries.” Despite the popularity boom, TisaKorean makes sure to always be proactive with every step of his work, from designing the graphics to editing the visuals.
