The 2015 edition featured electric and headline-making performances by the likes of The War on Drugs, Future Islands, Portugal. The Man, Charles Bradley, breakout acts like BØRNS and much more with nearly 4,000 attendees packing the house over the three days. 

This second year promises to be an equally sensational experience with a lineup that spans rock, electro/synth-pop, garage rock, bluegrass, Americana and representing a variety of countries including Canadian act The Strumbellas, Swedish artist Miike Snow, Australian act Tigertown and UK acts Eliot Sumner, The Crookes and Lawrence Taylor.  Global acts to watch. Performances will begin at 2 p.m. each day and continue through the evening, allowing fans to enjoy more than two-dozen bands in an intimate venue, along with Banger’s famous homemade sausages, 100+ beers on tap and relaxed outdoor setting.

“As a globally-growing brand in both the music and tech industries, activating at SXSW is a seamless fit for StubHub,” said Justin Finn, Head of Event Marketing and Sponsorships.  “Building off all our success here last year, we're excited to go even bigger and better in 2016, bringing more unique performances from emerging and global acts to fans and industry colleagues at Bangers.”
