SXSW Music 2015, Saturday

FLOODfest at Cedar Street closes with a final afternoon featuring Mystery Skulls, Big Data, and Twin Shadow; plus, Burgerama at Hotel Vegas, Girlpool at Fader Fort, and hanging out in South Congress.

With the rain back again, we wrapped up our inaugural FLOODfest, four days and three nights of music at Cedar Street presented by Lyve, with a final, fourth afternoon of music, which started with Mexican showcase, presented by Volumen/Ache, with awesome performances from Apolo and Enjambre. Ernie Ball contest winner The Brevet won over their crowd, as well, with an entertaining and uplifting set. Warner Bros. Records took over the rest of the afternoon, showcasing a versatile number of bands and artists, like young and lively Dylan Gardner, an electric dance mix by Mystery Skulls, a weekend-worthy set with Priory, British singer-songwriter Greg Holden, a computerized pop party by Big Data, and an amazing FLOODfest send-off from Twin Shadow.

A huge thank you to all of our FLOODfest sponsors; the amazing teams at Cedar Street Courtyard, Peché, and Isla; our presenters Lyve and Seagate; and everyone who came out to celebrate SXSW with us. It was an incredible week of music and we can’t wait to do it again. Until next time…
