Bright Eyes, Raphael Saadiq, The Antlers Headline NPR Music's SXSW Coverage

The South by Southwest music festival and conference is rapidly approaching (Mar. 16-20) and NPR Music will be there again this year, webcasting a bunch of full concerts, live online. This year, you'll be able to watch the shows with our live video stream from three shows: two official SXSW showcases and our annual NPR Music party.

Here's the schedule. Times and lineups are always subject to change. Please watch for updates.


Note that the Stubb's show requires an official SXSW badge or wristband to get in, while the NPR Music party at The Parish and the show at Auditorium Shores are free and open to the public.

In the meantime, you can hear a mix of songs from 100 select artists appearing at SXSW this year in our Austin 100 music tream.
