South By South West Festival

Steve Lamacq takes his show to the South By South West Festival in Austin Texas. In 2008, Steve took a little known artist to South by South West and showcased her talent to the world. Her name: Florence + the Machine. This year, Steve returns to the world's biggest new festival and has handpicked some of the best and exciting acts to have been supported by BBC Introducing. Joining Steve on the famous 6th Street are, alt-pop duo Thumpers, anthemic songwriters Longfellow, electro-pop act Cousin Marnie, and riff-heavy rockers from Brighton, Royal Blood. Steve will bring the sound of Texas to the listeners, with a special three hour live show showcasing the brand new music he has discovered on his trip.
