For a third, fantastic year, we will be painting Austin green. From March 10th through the 14th, the Spotify House will be your go-to venue to unwind and discover the best in new music.

This year, we’re moving to a brand new venue with more room to check out bands and catch up with friends. Our 2014 lineup boasts 30+ must-see acts - including emerging stars G-Eazy and MØ, along with Glass Animals, Tove Lo, Jungle and Betty Who, to electro rockers Phantogram, St. Paul and The Broken Bones and many more - we’ve got something for everyone! In years past, Spotify has hosted a number of break-out artists during SXSW such as Kimbra, Haim, Kendrick Lamar, Tom Odell and St. Lucia and this year will be no different. Get the full line-up day by day here.

The CW Network, partner of The Spotify House and home of shows including The Vampire Diaries, Arrow, and Supernatural, will have stars from the upcoming sci-fi drama The 100 and other hit series stopping by to hang with some of the coolest new bands.

For even more awesomeness on the ground, we’ll be introducing a music-themed mosaic photo booth created by The Brigade, an interactive playlist generator as well as music trivia installation created by Beak Labs.

Twenty One Pilots but only two members. They had already blown away the assembled Spotify House crowd before they took to the audience for a riotous drum-off finale.

Their Spotify Session is sure to get you moving. Tune in here.

For SXSW 2013, Spotify once again teamed up with Spoon drummer and acclaimed producer Jim Eno to chair exclusive, full-band Sessions at his Public Hi-Fi Studios.

Jim captured breakout artists such as Frank Turner, Joe Banfi, Haim, The 1975, Willy Moon, Palma Violets, The Neighbourhood and Half Moon Run, who ended up putting one track from the Session on their debut album.
