Four Seasons Hotel Austin and KUTX 98.9 are partnering for the fifth consecutive year to present live early morning broadcasts during South-by-Southwest, connecting Austin music fans with some of the festival’s most anticipated performers.
This year’s broadcasts will take place in the Hotel’s ballroom Wednesday, March 15 through Saturday, March 18. The music is scheduled from 7:00 am to 10:30 am Wednesday through Friday, with performances at the start of each hour (all timing shifts an hour later on Saturday to allow our musicians some much-needed sleep). The 2017 lineup is still being confirmed and will be announced on the Hotel’s website in early March.
In the spirit of offering something to everyone, “Spare the Rock Spoil the Child,” which airs on KUTX 98.9 on Sunday evenings, will present family-friendly sets each morning at 8:30 and 9:30 am in the Lobby Lounge.
Broadcasts are open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis. Admission is $10 per person per day – $5 for guests ages 12 and under – and includes a breakfast taco, granola bar and coffee. All proceeds benefit the Seton Shivers Cancer Center.
Please note, limited self-parking will be available in the Hotel garage on a first-come, first served basis at a discounted rate of $5 per car until 1:00 pm.
