It’s time again to apply to play at SXSW. Applications are open, but before you apply to play, make sure that you are ready. On Music Think Tank, Simon Tam gives some advice on what you can do to prepare and apply to play at SXSW. Remember to submit your applications along with the fee by November 7 at the latest on Sonicbids. The application can be found here.
“In addition to bands who play often, they’re looking for bands who have gotten some industry buzz: press mentions, radio play, licensing, recommendations from people in the music industry, etc.”
