Saddle up Texas K-pop fans, because this year’s SXSW showcase lineup is out.
Since 2013, the Austin-based music conference has hosted a K-pop Night Out showcase, attracting headliners like f(x), Hyuna, Jay Park, Epik High, and more.
The lineup was released in announcement made today by SXSW, which states, “This year’s lineup includes R&B singer/producers Zion.T with The Session, IDM/minimal house producer Haihm, K-Pop girl group Mamamoo, synth indie-rockers Love X Stereo, heavy metal worshippers Victim Mentality, and more to be announced.”
The showcase will take place on Wednesday, March 16 at the Belmont in Austin, a welcome venue change to host the increasingly popular event.
In addition to the K-pop Night Out showcase, Seoulsonic will also be returning to host their 7th annual showcase, featuring performances by “the breezy electro-pop of Neon Bunny, female post-rock trio Guten Birds, the Brit-pop embracing Bye Bye Badman, atmospheric electronic rock act HEO, reggae band Windy City, and electro-pop producer WYM.”
The Seoulsonic showcase will take place two days after K-pop Night Out on Friday, March 18 at the Majestic.
Both showcases are sure to be bigger and better than ever before, and moonROK will be there to cover it all so be sure to stay tuned.
