Public Radio's SXSW Takeover

Tank and The Bangas, seen here performing at NPR Music's 10th Anniversary party, will be all over SXSW 2018.
Tank and The Bangas, seen here performing at NPR Music's 10th Anniversary party, will be all over SXSW 2018.

Public radio hosts from around the country are heading to Austin for SXSW 2018, and they've got lots of live events planned. From official showcases on huge stages to live webstreams from tiny bars, the Public Radio SXSW Takeover will feature dozens of artists during five crazy days in Texas. If you're headed to the festival, this is your cheat sheet. If you're staying home (like most of us), don't worry: We'll be capturing lots of these events and presenting them on NPR.org in the days following SXSW.

We'll be adding to this guide in the coming days as more events are scheduled. Like everything else in life, these listings are subject to change.
