SXSW Planning Just Got Easier

 

There’s nowhere I would rather be next week than SXSW, but I’ll be holding the fort down here in Boise, getting ready for Treefort Music Fest. If you are on your way to the awesomeness that is SXSW, but are feeling a little overwhelmed with the schedule, never fear, Monstro is here. Laying out the bands that are trending and figuring out where you want to be just got a little easier. The SXSW website has a long list of the venues and artists playing this giant 5000+ event festival, and their schedule is definitely comprehensive, but if you’re looking for a bit of help through the chaos Monstro has released their MONSTRO SOCIAL MUSIC CHART SXSW EDITION. 

Put the power of Monstro to work for you at SXSW Music- There are a lot of artists showcasing at this year’s SXSW music conference. With the help and power of Monstro, you can see which bands are trending right now, were tops for the day, or have built excitement during all of SXSW. You can also tailor the result by Venue or Genre.

Monstro’s press release stated, “users can interact, via Twitter, with artists and listen to their music via Rdio. By culminating tweets shared about SXSW, the chart provides a simple, immediate way for fans to interact with artists and discover break-out hits, and artists can respond to and engage with their fans.” Monstro is an innovator in linking social media and music to both fans and artists.

“We want to make it easy for SXSW attendees to see which artists are trending and select which artists to see, and interact with those artists. And, we want to provide a way for artists to interact with their fans,” said Jeff Fedor, co-founder and co-CEO, Monstro. “We think we’ve done that by developing the free Monstro Social Music Chart SXSW Edition.”

If you aren’t familiar with Monstro and their social networking aspect to bringing music to the masses, you can read about them here. I can’t wait to hear all about SXSW when everyone gets back!
