As part of its longstanding partnership with the Canadian Independent Music Association, Stingray Music is proud to attend SXSW for the very first time. This year, Stingray Music is the official music provider for Canada House, located on the legendary Rainey Street. We’ll be attending and covering various events and promoting Stingray Music, including the launch of the US app, during our stay in Austin.
STINGRAY RISING STARS @ CANADIAN BLAST BBQ
In a few days, CIMA’s (Canadian Independent Music Association) legendary Canadian Blast BBQ will return to Austin, TX, as the kickoff for Music Export Canada’s mission at SXSW! As part of the Stingray Rising Stars program, we are happy to contribute to CIMA’s Canadian Blast BBQ. This year, the BBQ will move to a brand-new location, The Bungalow (92 Rainey St, Austin TX).
Grab a bite, mingle with some of Canada’s best and brightest and listen to your future-favourite artists on Wednesday, March 13 from 1 PM-5:30 PM while thawing out in the Texan sunshine. The BBQ is open to all SXSW badge holders.
The stellar Canadian Blast BBQ lineup at SXSW features Goodbye Honolulu, Hillsburn, Kai Exos, Liza, Melanie Brulée, Soran, Tallies, and The Dirty Nil.
Later that day, Canada House will be taken over by an official SXSW showcase hosted by Canadian indie record label Dine Alone Records.
