(AllHipHop News) The Fader Fort is returning to Austin for the 2018 South by Southwest Festival. This year's showcase will feature performances from SOB X RBE, BbyMutha, Now Now, YBN Nahmir, Mozzy, Soccer Mommy, and more.
“Fader Fort began as a way for The Fader to elevate and amplify the artists and creators we champion in an authentic way, while providing an inclusive home that fosters discovery, connections, and collaborations,” says The Fader’s President and Publisher, Andy Cohn. “The original spirit of Austin and SXSW is what inspired Fader Fort in the first place, and we’re extremely grateful to be able to return again this year to host FORT in a city that has remained a prime destination for music discovery throughout the years.”
A Beats 1 creative space, a Jack Daniel's Salon Barbershop, a New Balance 574 sneaker activation, and SPiN ping pong games are also part of the event. The 2017 edition of The Fader's SXSW function featured Cardi B, DRAM, Lil Yachty, Young M.A., Kyle, and others.
Fader Fort 2018 is scheduled for March 14–16. The event is guest list-only and there will be no public RSVP.
