James Minor who is the head of the music festival at SXSW said the list for the SXSW 2020 has artistes from different corners of the globe with different genres of music and the artistes are people that will be heard about continuously in the future. He added that it is likely to get better and more artistes will be added with time.
SXSW is a South by Southwest annual festival that consists of film, interactive media, music festivals and conferences that started in 1987 and has continued to grow with each passing year. The festival takes place in the middle of the month of March and usually lasts for 10days. For the year 2020, the festival will last for 7days.
The SXSW festival started when the Southwest decided it was time to start helping creative people gain recognition, celebrate them and also help them achieve their goals. It is a platform where professionals come together with the availability of a different variety of networking opportunities.
Congratulations to all the artistes going to represent Africa.
