2016 artist Lineup

Every March the music industry, and music fans, converge on the southwestern city of Austin, Texas for the annual SXSW Music Festival. Nestled away, just steps from the SXSW chaos, is the Southwest Invasion, an event that brings together great vibe, good eats, and an all-star music lineup that's accessible to everyone. 

This three-day, FREE, all ages event attracts a healthy mix of industry, artists, and local residents to a very unique setting atop Whole Foods' flagship store in downtown Austin on North Lamar Blvd.
