Fader Fort 2015

Annual SXSW showcase kicks off...

Two days down, two more to go at The Fader's annual SXSW showcase

The Fader Fort has been a SXSW insitution for fourteen years now. As a magazine, The Fader is always exposing emerging music regardless of genre, and their tent in Austin is no different.
If you're lucky enough to snag one of the invite only passes (as sported by BT's Eoin below) you can expect to catch everything from hip-hop, pop, techno and heavy guitar bands to soul and jazz. The last two days alone have seen performances as diverse as Girl Band to RIFF RAFF and Miley Cyrus (no, really). 
Only at the midway point of this year's Fort, it's been a really strong showcase. Yesterday, UK grime star Skepta left the Austin crowd reeling, whilst Shamir brought his bright yellow trousered pop a-game.
Some of the other highlights so far has been Wolf Alice, QT, Rae SremmurdSpazzkidSeinabo Sey, BADBADNOTGOOD & Ghostface Killah
If you're like me, and nowhere near Austin at the moment, you can stream everything live hereor if also like me you're a bit lazy– get it on SnapChat [fadersnaps]. There's still two days of the Fort to go with at least three more surprise guests to be announced.
