South By SXSW is taking applications for bands to be a part of the 2010 showcase in Austin, Texas.
SXSW Music Festival showcases nearly 2,000 musical acts over 5 days on more than 80 stages in downtown Austin. Labels, agents, managers, manufacturers, publishers, writers, bloggers, media giants and fans all meet for five days in Austin to celebrate music and make deals. Why not join them?
Sonicbids is the official online music submission partner of the 2010 SXSW Music Conference and Festival.
To apply online using Sonicbids, log in to your Sonicbids account and look for SXSW in the Find Gigs section. If you’re not already a member, you can create an account – it’s free for 6 months when you apply to SXSW. The free trial period is a terrific opportunity to try out all of Sonicbids services, but if you choose to deactivate your account at any time after applying, SXSW will still have access to your uploaded materials. From there, you can create your Sonicbids Electronic Press Kit, which they will use to listen to your music and review your press materials. You won’t need to upload any additional materials. Click here to get started.
Unlike in the past, this year there will not be a separate international and domestic deadline. The Showcase Application fee is $40 and must be submitted no later than November 6, 2009.
