Berklee is hosting its 7th Annual Official SXSW Day Party, Friday, March 16, 2012, 1:00 to 5:30 p.m., at Friends in Austin and is looking for exciting up-and-coming alumni acts to feature on the show. This listing is for the official Berklee-sponsored party at SXSW 2012 and is only open to acts that include alumni of Berklee College of Music.

Selected artists will receive a performance slot on Berklee's Party. This does NOT include payment or a SXSW artist badge. Submissions are open to acts from all over, but acts who are from Austin or are already planning to be in Austin for SXSW are preferred as travel is not provided.

Preference also given to bands who have NOT previously performed at a Berklee SXSW Party or CMJ Showcase. There will be a total of 5-8 bands and/or solo acts from a variety of genres featured, performing short, 20 minute sets.

Submissions will be reviewed by Berklee College of Music and acts submitting to this listing will not be considered for other SXSW parties. Submissions directly to SXSW are now closed- this opportunity is for Berklee students and alumni only.

After celebrating 25 years as the world's leading music industry event, the SXSW® Music and Media Conference is back to continue the tradition in 2012. Reaching a quarter of a century of being the biggest and most anticipated convergence of all things music, SXSW is ready to keep the reputation alive by programming an even better event each year.
