Out of close to 75 OZ & NZ bands or solo artists who were invited to showcase at the world’s largest, longest-running and most prestigious music festival and global industry conference, 36 Australian and 15 New Zealand artists have accepted their invitations to rock out at South by Southwest Music Festival & Conferences in Austin, Texas March 17-21 2010.

Over 300 bands from the two AustralAsian countries applied as did more than 10,000 from 49 countries, all vying for 1800 individual one-hour showcase slots at 88 venues in “The Live Music Capital of The World”. More than 250 OZ & NZ delegates will also attend among 15,000 music industry professionals from around the world. It will be the largest number of artists and also music business pros in the US from both countries at any one time.

Through export strategies of AUSTRADE and the New Zealand Music Commission over the past eight years–with trade fair stands, special parties and barbecues, advertising and marketing assistance as well as travel subsidies–the outcomes have been hugely successful in export impact of bands playing before major and indie record labels, agents, promoters, film music scouts and over 1200 media–all hungry to find the ‘Next New Thing’.

Here’s the next wave of the Antipodean Invasion in just two months time.
