If you think Austin, Texas’ South by Southwest festival is only a showcase for new talent, think again.
This year’s music portion, beginning Wednesday, March 16, features several heavyweights, including TV on the Radio, the Strokes, Cee-Lo Green, emerging hip-hop collective Odd Future, Erykah Badu, and Lupe Fiasco. But one star on the week’s lineup is being touted as the can’t miss act: Kanye West. The polarizing rhymer is set to hit the Vevo PowerStation, Saturday March 19. This won’t be the first time West performs there; in 2009, he and his G.O.O.D. Music acts Mr. Hudson and Big Sean rocked the Fader Fort.
Check out the video promo for West’s show this Saturday after the jump.
