Musicians, want to play a SXSW show?

Posted by Frank

To all you musicians who would like the chance to head down to Texas and play a show at SXSW, here's your chance. The crew behind Gigmaven have a contest going on that will award two winners slots at their SXSW day party at Emo's in Austin on Tuesday, March 15th. They'll also throw in money toward travel expenses, professional photography of your set at the gig and more.

There are two ways to win and they both involve uploading pretty simple videos to YouTube, so if you like the idea of playing a SXSW show there's really no reason not to enter. Winners will be announced on March 2nd at 2 p.m. The full rules and instructions are here.

  1. Did you know that Chicago's Verona Red won this? They ended up playing 10 shows throughout the week. Thanks so much for sharing this opportunity!

  2. Wasn't aware of that, Tracy. That's great!
