Sounds Australia to present live streaming showcase of Australia's SXSW 2020 artists

3 For the Stream is Sounds Australia's first ever locally produced, live streamed showcase event.

In the wake of SXSW 2020's cancellation, Sounds Australia has conceived 3 For the Stream. They'll be live streaming performances from 19 Australian artists who were due to perform at the Austin, Texas conference later this month.

"3 For The Stream will feature 19 acts across three stages, over four hours, promising to be a day that celebrates some of Australia’s finest emerging talent," Sounds Australia said in the official release.


The participating artists include Alex the Astronaut, Gena Rose Bruce, Cable Ties, Hachiku, Quivers, Tim Shiel and Sui Zhen. Each artist will perform a three song set as part of the four hour live stream event. It's taking place across three stages on Friday March 20. 


"Thanks to Facebook [the event will] be streamed back-to-back from Melbourne’s iconic Bakehouse Studios to an international online audience of music industry buyers, media and new fans," said Sounds Australia. You can watch it live via Sounds Australia's Facebook page at 9am AEDT on Friday March 20. See the full list of artists below.
