For a third, fantastic year, we will be painting Austin green. From March 10th through the 14th, the Spotify House will be your go-to venue to unwind and discover the best in new music.
This year, we’re moving to a brand new venue with more room to check out bands and catch up with friends.
Our 2014 lineup boasts 30+ must-see acts – including emerging stars G-Eazy and MØ, along with Glass Animals, Tove Lo, Jungle and Betty Who, to electro rockers Phantogram, St. Paul and The Broken Bones and many more – we’ve got something for everyone! In years past, Spotify has hosted a number of break-out artists during SXSW such as Kimbra, Haim, Kendrick Lamar, Tom Odell and St. Lucia and this year will be no different. Get the full line-up day by day here.
The CW Network, partner of The Spotify House and home of shows including The Vampire Diaries, Arrow, and Supernatural, will have stars from the upcoming sci-fi drama The 100 and other hit series stopping by to hang with some of the coolest new bands.
For even more awesomeness on the ground, we’ll be introducing a music-themed mosaic photo booth created by The Brigade, an interactive playlist generator as well as music trivia installation created by Beak Labs.

After smashing Splendour In The Grass 2012 and playing shows to critical acclaim around the country, this June, Southampton rock trio Band Of Skulls are returning to Australia in support of their upcoming LP ‘Himalayan’. With their last album ‘Sweet Sour‘ hitting the the ARIA album charts at #35 and spawning a stream of killer singles including, ”The Devil Takes Care Of his Own” and “Sweet Sour”, the burning blues riffs and master melodies of Band of Skulls are gladly back on their upcoming album (produced by Nick Launay of Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Arcade Fire fame).
Sharing stages with the likes of Queens of the Stone Age, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and The Black Keys, Band of Skulls are no newbies to the live setting. Make sure you catch the grit-rock force of three at their upcoming shows in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.
Well if you’re a Spotify Premium user you’re in luck, you can also drop by the Spotify Premium Lounge (adjacent to the VIP bar) to chill out between sets, have some fun in the photo booth, get some shade from the sun, and a drink at the bar.
You’ll need a VIP ticket & Spotify app on your mobile for entry or, if you haven’t already tried Spotify Premium, just download the free Spotify Premium trial app on the day to gain entry! It’s free, and it’s easy.
Hope to see you there!

“We are creating Listen Out because there isn’t a national dance music event that isn’t super commercial… We see a need for a return to this simple idea: A straight up, quality dance-off in beautiful surroundings. That’s what Listen Out is” – Fuzzy Director John Wall

We opened the doors of our Big Green Spotify House in Austin today for SXSW! Day One was filled with sunshine, live music, DJs, a Seahawk, and one friendly duck.
Ivan & Alyosha kicked off the day with a live set in our front yard. An acoustic, unplugged version of their hit “Easy to Love” drew the crowd in for one of the most intimate performances of the day.
Robert DeLong brought along face painters and treated our guests to some facial art before bringing down the house in a one-man show featuring drums, a joystick and even a Wii remote.
Watch the Duck closed out the day with a two hour session on our front porch with their mascot dancing amongst the crowd. Mixing in some Marvin Gaye, Law & Order theme songs and Barney, the sun set on day one with some serious partying.
Seattle Seahawk Russell Okung and Downloaded Director Alex Winter were amongst the guests checking out our photo booth, iced coffee from our friends at Cenote and Cuvee, and grub from East Side Kings.
The lineup tomorrow is sure to keep the party going as the music portion of SXSW gets started. Doors open at 12pm so get here early to secure a spot for performances by Jamie N Commons at 1pm and Twenty One Pilots at 3pm followed by DJ sets from White Panda at 4pm and Sam Spiegel at 5pm.
And keep following us on Twitter at @SxSpotify for all of your live updates from the Spotify House.
With Big Day Out just around the corner it’s time to turn the speakers up and get ready for the festival with our custom Spotify warm up playlist. Featuring hit songs from headliners The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Killers, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Vampire Weekend, Alabama Shakes and much much more.

We are thrilled to team up with acclaimed Swedish DJ duo, CAZZETTE, to present the group’s debut album “eject.” exclusively on Spotify!
The talented dub house pair, consisting of Sebastian Furrer and Alexander Björklund, is set to release “eject.” in three parts, via a unique Spotify app.
Get the app here and stay tuned to these dates for each new release:
- Part I – November 13th
- Part II – December 11th
- Part III – January 22nd, 2013
As well as housing all three parts of “eject.,” the app will feature all things CAZZETTE, including the twosome’s favorite club music and remixes, their latest videos, contests, tour dates and social chatter.
Managed by At Night, the folks behind Avicii’s meteoric career, CAZZETTE started to make waves with official remixes of Avicii and Swedish House Mafia tracks. They quickly scored main stage appearances at festivals such as Ultra, Tomorrowland, Creamfields and Beyond Wonderland. And now, with the first-of-its-kind exclusive release of “eject.” on Spotify, CAZZETTE is primed to be the next big thing in contemporary dance music.
