During South By Southwest (SXSW), Samsung Galaxy and Billboard are partnering to host a celebrity-filled concert series at The Stage during SXSW from March, 17th through March 19th. The contcert series will be presented at the Moody Amphitheater at Waterloo Park, Austin’s newest state-of-the-art outdoor venue in the heart of downtown.
Attendees can experience the concert series starting March 17th, with headliners Gunna and Young Thug, and on Friday, March 18, Palm Tree Crew presents Kygo, supported by Frank Walker and Forester. The concert series ends on Saturday, March 19, when Shawn Mendes and Sebastian Yatra will take the stage. Additionally, all three nights, attendees can groove along to sets from DJ Rosegold and DJ VRYWVY.
The event is sponsored by Samsung Galaxy, with Samsung Galaxy exclusively hosting the Friday and Saturday shows. The Samsung | Billboard Galaxy House at SXSW will offer attendees the opportunity to experience compelling panel content and interact with Samsung products on-site — including the brand-new Samsung Galaxy S22 — plus brand row activation, pop-up moments, artist gifting and consumer touch points at the concerts.
Billboard is donating a portion of ticket proceeds to Waterloo Greenway Conservancy, a nonprofit organization that aims to create an urban park system in partnership with the city of Austin. Waterloo Park, the first of the organization’s three phases, opened in 2021 to provide 11 acres of downtown green space, community programming and performing arts and entertainment at the Moody Amphitheater.
For those looking to experience the three-night music extravaganza, a reserved number of tickets will be available exclusively for existing SXSW music and platinum badge holders and SXSW Music Festival wristband holders. Additionally, a limited number of tickets are open to the public starting Friday; find details and ticketing information here.
During SXSW, from March 11th through the 20th, Billboard will be reporting live on Billboard.com and follow @billboard on Instagram and Twitter for the latest news and announcements.
