Machine Shop: Hype Machine Team Blog

Lineup for the Hype Hotel at SXSW + RSVP

We are throwing our biggest party to date! Hype Hotel, presented by Taco Bell’s Feed The Beat, is five straight days of music, drinks, and Taco Bell tacos, March 13-17 in Austin, TX.

Lineups are curated by the terrific My Old Kentucky Blog, Song By Toad, Aquarium Drunkard, Gorilla vs. Bear, Yours Truly, No Modest Bear, Cream Team, I Guess I’m Floating, and Nialler9. This is the closest we’ve come to recreating the Hype Machine experience in real life, and we hope you enjoy your stay with us.

A huge thanks to our sponsors: Taco Bell, Livestream, Miller, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, SOL REPUBLIC, Jakprints, High End Systems and Orange Amps.

RSVP is now open.

Wanted: Volunteers in Austin

Our multi-day blog party is shaping up well and we need your help.

We are looking for volunteer staff to help with production, registration, barbacking, and helping guests during March 13 – 17.

You get all-access to the event, music, connections to bands, startups and the music industry (if that’s your thing).

You must be 21+, love music, and be available on those days.

Email, send us a link to your Facebook and Twitter, and tell us your favorite band of 2012.


Hype Machine indexes hundreds of music sites and collects their latest posts for easy streaming and discovery. We're here to help you find the best new music first.
