“We look at this festival as an opportunity to further brand Digiwaxx as a company while wholeheartedly entering into genres outside of the realm of hip-hop.”- Corey Llewellyn CEO of Digiwaxx Media

For the second year in a row Digiwaxx Media will create a musical explosion with its eclectic Blast Live showcase at the South By South West (SXSW) Conference and Festival in Austin, Texas. Riding high from the success from last year’s Blast Live show with Asher Roth, Cool Kids, Pac Div, and many more Digiwaxx is kicking it up a notch this year by taking over Austin for 3 Days of non-stop hip-hop, pop, and rock music powerhouse performances. Redman and Reflection Eternal (Talib Kweli and Hi-Tek) give only a hint of the type of surprise talent that will rock the stage beginning Thursday, March 18th and running thru Saturday March 20th at the trendy Austin venue, The Ranch located at 708 W. 6th Street.

The Blast Live @ SXSW will be a 3-Day music oasis bursting with noteworthy talent from across genre lines ranging in size from the most talked about newcomers to top well established names all deemed by Digiwaxx as 2010’s most anticipated artists. Always an aggregator of the new and exclusive, the Digiwaxx lineup has intermingled performances by industry staples such as with highly sought after freshmen artists including Shanell of Young Money fame, Outasight and Supa Nova Slom (from the Bill Cosby commissioned hip-hop project, The Cosnarati Band). Artists will perform daily from 1-7pm for a total of eighteen hours of live entertainment spanning three days.

Digiwaxx Media, an industry insider infamous for breaking new music and trends to DJs, radio, and consumers for large label clients, independent artists, and prestigious corporate clients, is the ideal company to create such an experience. They are crafted music experts and fully understand the importance of SXSW serving as a breeding ground for new artists and providing a launch pad for major artist’s new releases.

“SXSW has successfully melded the various facets of film, music and technology in a way that it is now the go to place for what is hot and new on the burgeoning scene," says CL, CEO of Digiwaxx Media. “We look at this festival as an opportunity to further brand Digiwaxx as a company while wholeheartedly entering into genres outside of the realm of hip-hop.” This musical expansion is evident by Digiwaxx’s inclusion of various rocks acts including The Constellations, Game Rebellion and The Kin. This master list of performers will give audiences an unforgettable show while still allowing them to enjoy the relaxed environment that is synonymous with SXSW.
