Kacey Musgraves, Maren Morris to Play Spotify House at SXSW
Country music will be well represented at this year’s South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin, Texas. The annual event will take place from March 15-20 and will include performances by Texas natives Kacey Musgraves and Maren Morris.
Spotify will be attending SXSW, and their annual Spotify House will feature two stages of live performances each day from over 45 acts. Artists participating in sets at the House will include Musgraves, Morris, Lanco, Lucie Silvas, John Moreland, Miguel and Vince Staples, among others. Additionally, Spotify will feature live DJ’ed SoulCycle rides, a customized SXSW Playlist Generator and an interactive experience with Syfy’s Hunters. For the complete lineup, visit SpotifyHouse.com.
The fifth-annual Spotify House will be located at 1501 E 6th St. at SXSW from March 14-18. The digital music streaming service will also introduce a SXSW-themed playlist generator that will feature all the artists performing at 2016’s SXSW. Both Musgraves and Morris will play on March 16.
Musgraves has been busy protecting herself lately, speaking out against stolen intellectual property after finding her lyrics painted on wood and sold at various stores and online retailers.
“Heads up! This sign was found being sold in a major western wear chain. (It’s now pulled off the shelves) but it, along with SO MANY other countless items with my song lyrics [and sometimes my name] are being illegally manufactured and sold in not only major chains but in smaller retailers too,” she writes on Instagram alongside a photo while holding a sign with her lyrics painted on it. “My lyrics are being ripped off so many times and, naturally, nobody buying this stuff would ever know that the people who actually CREATED these lyrics are seeing ZERO benefits. It’s a huge problem I face every day.”
