Steve is joined by Radio 1's Huw Stephens for a very special announcement about the South By South West music festival, in Austin, Texas for 2015. SXSW is the world's leading new music festival which showcases fresh talent from around the globe. Last year Steve, along with BBC Introducing, took the show to SXSW and showcased brand new bands, including Royal Blood, who went on to become one of the biggest breakthrough acts of 2014. Other acts Steve has championed at South By South West are Florence and the Machine and Public Service Broadcasting, so there's history of finding and showcasing the best talent around. Huw is a new music champion at Radio 1 who hosts an evening show, showcasing the best undiscovered music in the UK. Both Steve and Huw have strong ties with BBC Introducing, the initiative to find new musical talent in Britain.
