The 25th SXSW Conference & Festival officially kicked off today in Austin, Texas. The music program starts on the 15th. Since it’s the festivals 25th year, they are going big! This year, 2,000 acts from 61 countries will perform in 90 venues in Austin. That’s a lot of music… and it’s great music too.
In order to get ready for the massive event, the SXSW organizers have given us 21 FREE songs to wet our appetite. The collection includes some of my favorites like The Civil Wars, The Republic Tigers, Bright Eyes, Glasser, and Talib Kweli… and many more soon-to-be-favorites…. and it’s FREE for a limited time.
Download it now for FREE. Enjoy.
