Yamaha Entertainment Group is proud to bring a few musical favorites to the live music capital of the world with their very own South by Southwest (SXSW) showcase, which will kick off at 8 p.m. on Saturday, March 16 at the VEVO Control Room, located at 304 W. 4th Street in Austin, TX.
Featured performers include The Last Royals, Laura Mvula, LEOGUN, Cave Painting, Syd Arthur, Ranch Ghost, and In the Valley Below. As this is an official festival event, SXSW badge and wristband holders will get priority access, though tickets will also be available for sale at the door. The VEVO Control Room, previously known as Austin’s beloved “Ghost Room,” will reopen its doors for the Yamaha showcase for both old and new listeners to not only relive the history of past musicians who have seen its stage but to also revel in the new age music and magic that is South by Southwest. Set times are as follows:
8:00 p.m. Ranch Ghost
8:45 p.m. Syd Arthur
9:45 p.m. Cave Painting
10:45 p.m. LEOGUN

Among the talented names on the showcase lineup is that of Yamaha Entertainment Group’s very own LEOGUN, a three-piece British band surging with a mix of blues, soul and rock and roll. Yamaha’s highly anticipated label debut band will make a stop on their current nationwide tour to bring their electric live show to Austin as well as promote their forthcoming album By The Reigns.
In addition to curating this live music showcase, Yamaha Entertainment Group will interact with the 70,000+ anticipated SXSW attendees through giveaways and promotions. Through social media, six brand new pairs of Yamaha HPH-MT220 headphones will be given away. A Yamaha Entertainment Group street team will be perusing the streets of downtown Austin from March 13-16, encouraging attendees to Instagram a picture wearing the headphones with the hashtag #YamahaSXSW for a chance to win a pair. The promotion will end at midnight on March 16th, and winners will be notified the following day.

Also, showcase attendees will be encouraged to check in on Facebook upon arrival to the event to redeem free drink offers to compliment the free nacho bar that will be set up to ease those inevitable hunger pains from the long festival days. http://4wrd.it/ECGFH
