On Friday, February 18, Billboard and Samsung announced that they have partnered up for a breathtaking roster of concerts throughout 2022 SXSW.

The “Samsung + Billboard Present The Stage at SXSW” event will occur from March 17 to 19. This three-night series of headlining performances is set in Austin, Texas’ Moody Amphitheater at Waterloo Park and promises an unforgettable experience for music fans. 

The venue hosts a three-day music festival this year with some big names headlining. Gunna and Young Thug will be playing on Thursday, March 17; Palm Tree Crew brings Kygo backed by Frank Walker and Forester for their show that day too. Then, on Saturday, March 19, Shawn Mendes and Sebastian Yatra finish up what has been a fantastic weekend at this event. 

Over three nights, the audience will party with DJ Rosegold and DJ VRYWVY.

Samsung Galaxy is sponsoring the event and exclusively hosting the shows on Friday and Saturday. In addition, the SXSW Samsung | Billboard Galaxy House will provide guests the chance to encounter fascinating panel content and interconnect with Samsung products on-site. 

It features the brand-new Samsung Galaxy S22 and the brand row activation, pop-up moments, gifting artists and customer touchpoints throughout the concerts. 

The Waterloo Greenway Conservancy will receive a donation from the concert (handed by Billboard) to help develop an urban park system in collaboration with Austin city.

The first aspect (out of three) of the organization’s aim – Waterloo Park – has been established in 2021 to offer 11 acres of downtown green space, community programming and performing arts and entertainment at the Moody Amphitheater. 

With exclusive access to reserved tickets, badge holders and wristband owners can enjoy this year’s SXSW Music Festival. Unfortunately, it means that only a limited number of publicly available spots will be available beginning on Friday.
