This might ease the FOMO a little if you’re bummed that you’re not at SXSW in Austin right now – Warner Music Group‘s premium YouTube channel The Warner Sound is providing live streams for the three nights of concerts it is staging at the gigantic showcase event this week.
A stack of ace acts will be performing over the three gigs, which are scheduled for 12th-14th March. That means, given the time difference between Australia and the US, the first night of action is taking place…rrrrrrrright about now.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Paramore and The Flaming Lips are the nightly headliners, while Aussie boys The Rubens will also be flying our flag during their half-hour set tomorrow.
“This is a fantastic case study for what’s possible when you put together great artists with an imaginative brand at SXSW,” said Atlantic Records spokesperson Jonathan Feldman. “It’s a great way of amplifying these unique performances and reaching new audiences in an innovative way.”
Here are the streams and the set times for each night, all in local time (AEDT) for your convenience!
