To celebrate Daytrotter‘s 6th birthday, you can listen to live streams from SXSW for FREE this week.

“The sweet smell of BBQ is likely wafting off of this newsletter. We apologize if it feels like we’re rubbing it in, but we touched down in Austin, Texas last night for the most exhausting and exhilarating week of music that the entire year has to offer — SXSW. The great thing is that — THIS YEAR — you won’t have to wait a few months to begin hearing all of the great artists we are recording down here. In continuing Daytrotter’s 6th birthday celebration this month, all of the live streams happening in Austin this week can be listened to FREE.

We currently live stream sessions from the six studios around the world where we tape Daytrotter sessions and this week you can listen in and hear what you’ve been missing as these sessions are being taped. They are fascinating peeks into the process of Daytrotter sessions that you can’t hear anywhere else.

Already confirmed for live streams in Austin are the legendary Jimmy Cliff, Of Montreal, Owen, Gary Clark Jr., Delta Spirit, HAIM, Counting Crows, PAPA, Shearwater, Hellogoodbye, Harriet, Vox and the Hound, Jenny O, Widowspeak, Field Report, Devin, Madi Diaz and Prince Rama. Stay tuned to our daily newsletters for new additions as they come in and happy listening!”

— Mr. Daytrotter
