Finally, the day has arrived when we can sit back and relax for 0.043 seconds, because our friends over at Complex just dropped the full lineup for Austin Party Weekend, going down March 18-21 at SXSW. We’ve booked all the artists, organized all the labels, and put the finishing touches on what’s shaping up to be the biggest and most insane APW of all time.
Look deep into its beautiful eyes:
The only-non commercial event at SXSW this year, APW will feature sets from 15 different independent labels and over 150 artists. Through partnerships with Biz 3, Embrace, He^rd and Jukely, it’ll bring together non-stop (literally) talent from Mad Decent, OWSLA, Stones Throw, Neon Gold, Dim Mak, PC Music, Monstercat, IAMSOUND/Fiction, Fool’s Gold, Check Yo Ponytail, Ham On Everything, Secret Songs, Nina Las Vegas Presents and more. Always on the bleeding edge, APW is really the only event that brings together this many small labels and diverse and throws down on such a large scale without needing to sell you a shoe or a car or Valtrex or whatever.
Adding to the mix is Fradio (aka Australian Spotify), who will be streaming a live radio show with APW artists from the event and PHHHOTO, who’ll be bringing their specialized .gif photoboths for your selfie enjoyment.
