KCRW was one of the first radio stations to ever broadcast remotely from SXSW and is thrilled to have a new home that is open to the public.
“Sonos is committed to quality audio, innovation and music discovery, so this partnership is a natural fit, said Music Director and Morning Becomes Eclectic host Jason Bentley. “It also allows us to plant our flag in the middle of all the action at SXSW. People are welcome to stop by and pay us a visit.”
Like the Sonos Studio in Los Angeles, the Sonos Studio @ SXSW will feature a video installation, WiFi, film screenings, workshops and live bands. Band performances start Wednesday, March 13 from 3 to 8pm, and they will include; Poolside, Robert Delong, Sir Sly, Thomas Dybdahl, Chali 2Na, Kitten, and Robert Glasper.
SXSW badgeholders get priority access to the Sonos Studio, located directly behind the Convention Center at 608 Third Street, and it is open to the public during the day until it reaches capacity.
If you listen to KCRW on a Sonos speaker system, it is brought to you by TuneIn, who will be the supporting sponsor for KCRW’s on air broadcasts. In a continuing effort to make our content as accessible as possible, KCRW has found an ally in TuneIn, a service that offers access to thousands of streaming internet radio stations and millions of on-demand programs. KCRW continues to redefine what radio means in a world of evolving technology.
KCRW is hosting two official showcases open to anyone with a festival badge or wristband (no RSVP needed) on Wednesday, March 13, at the Radio Day Stage from 3pm to 6pm (Jake Bugg, Devendra Banhart, Boy) and at Haven from 8pm to 2am (Toro y Moi, Ra Ra Riot, Atlas Genius, Flight Facilities, Tom Odell, Wild Belle)
