Lineups are curated by the Hype Machine team and the excellent Aquarium Drunkard, Gorilla vs. Bear, Stereogum, I Guess I’m Floating, YVYNYL, Yours Truly and PORTALS. The event recreates the Hype Machine experience in real life, so that you can get away from listening to all this music on your phones, and come see it live. It’s better, really.
Passion Pit will also perform at Hype Hotel on March 11 with fellow Feed the Beat artist Wildcat! Wildcat! as part of Taco Bell’s first-of-its-kind rockumentary film – which will be created by fans online or at the show using #FeedtheBeat, and through a customizable live stream on FeedTheBeat.com.
RSVP is now open for free day shows. Night shows are open to SXSW badges/wristbands.
