SXSW 2015: The FADER FORT presented by Converse is open for business, first artists announced


This year’s South-By-Southwest FADER FORT Presented by Converse was announced this morning, along with the first wave of performers.

Among the few dozen bands and artists playing the March 18 to 21 outdoor tent on the other side of the highway in Austin, Texas, are Migos, Hudson Mohawke, Bleachers, Girlpool, and Vince Staples.

More than 30 additional acts will be announced in the coming weeks.


“The FADER launched The FADER FORT 14 years ago,” writes FADER. “Over that time, we’ve been amazed by how much the event has grown, and how many music fans we’ve been able to let through our doors each year. This year, we’ve once again partnered with Converse to help make this our best Fort yet.”
