South by Southwest(SXSW) is one of the premier festivals featuring music, film and interactive in the US. Thousands of people attend SXSW every year and Microsoft is using it to promote their latest flagship Windows Phone device Lumia Icon. Windows Phone is teaming up with KEXP, from March 12th to 14th you’ll get ultimate access to a free all-ages South by Southwest Showcase Series. They are also giving Nokia Lumia Icon to all KEXP staff in Austin to cover the event.
Not only do they have the ultimate concert recording device, but KEXP knows music inside-and-out (a prerequisite for working at one of the country’s best radio stations). End result? You get coverage that really matters. They will be capturing live bands and behind-the-scenes footage and interviews, recording it all in beautiful 1080p high definition and capturing every note with four dynamic high-range microphones.
The event will be hosted by Mellow Johnny’s Bike Shop and features performances from bands like Yellow Ostrich, Avi Buffalo, Vertical Scratchers and many more. So don’t miss it—follow Windows Phone on Facebook, Twitter and Vine.
