It’s dark, it’s 4:00 AM, and there’s already a line around the block at The W. That’s what happens every year for KGSR’s Live SXSW Broadcast.

Hundreds of music fans line up in the crazy early hours of the morning to make it into this exclusive broadcast event that puts them up close with their favorite well known artists. KGSR will broadcast Wednesday through Saturday morning during the SXSW Music Festival at the downtown hotel, W Austin. The broadcast features artist interviews, live performances, surprise guest appearances, and festival updates from Austin’s music experts—the KGSR DJs. Past performers include The Avett Brothers, Ed Sheeran, Phantogram, Leon Bridges, Hanson, X Ambassadors, and so many more! The small fee to attend the event benefits Make-A-Wish of Central & South Texas which grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.

Since 2012, KGSR has raised $82,689 for Make-A-Wish of Central & South Texas!
