In case you couldn't tell, we LOVE surprises!
And we are soooo excited to tease (ha!) that we are going to be having an internationally known, multiplatinum-selling superstar act performing at our big One Night In Austin party on March 16th!
You'll wanna hurry and buy your tickets ASAP - before they sell out!!!!
Our lineup is THE BEST of the whole SXSW music festival! It includes Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Paloma Faith, Stooshe, Charli XCX, Brooke Candy and many other hot acts we have yet to announce.
The only way to get GUARANTEED entry into our party is to buy tickets! And, even cooler, 100% of ticket sales will be split directly between the two non-profits we work the most closely with, Vh1's Save The Music Foundation and GLSEN, the Gay & Lesbian Straight Education Network. Both cater specifically to helping young people!
Buying tickets is the only way to get guaranteed entry. SXSW festival badges will be honored if capacity allows.
