    In just under a month, the entire music world will descend on Austin, Texas for the annual South by Southwest music conference and festival. Looking to put their talents on display for fans and industry folks alike, artists will come from all over — including from the UK. The British Music Embassy returns to SXSW this year to put a spotlight on the best Britain has to offer, and Consequence is proud to be part of the event this year with our own official showcase.

    Taking over The Courtyard at 4th (formerly Cedar Street Courtyard), BME will feature 12 expertly curated shows from March 11th through the 18th. Consequence’s showcase is set for Wednesday, March 15th from 8:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. Headlined by heavy psych rockers Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs, the party will also feature acclaimed singer-songwriter SOAK, rock trio Dream Wife, electronic groovers Low Island, art punk outfit Folly Group, and rising pop artist girli.

    With other presenting partners BBC Introducing, ATC-Live, Licks Magazine, and Output Belfast, the rest of the British Music Embassy SXSW lineup includes the likes of The Orielles, Balming Tiger, Dead Pony, Brooke Combe, Crawlers, ALASKALASKA, SIPHO, Miraa May, Youth Sector, and many more.
