BIRMINGHAM RAPPER Lady Leshurr has been announced on the line-up of the upcoming SWSW Music Festival in Austin, Texas.
The 22-year-old wordsmith, who recently released the highly-anticipated Queen’s Speech 5 freestyle, will take her award-winning skills on the mic stateside for the five-day festival in March.
“Badass MC @LadyLeshurr is performing at #SXSW Music you guys! One more artist to announce in this hour,” SXSW FM, a radio station affiliated with the festival, announced today (Jan 11).
The SXSW Music Festival is one of the largest and most influential global music events of the year, taking place every March in Austin, Texas – the Live Music Capital of the World.
At SXSW 2015, more than 30,000 music industry professionals and musicians took in six nights of performances in over 100 downtown venues, with a lineup featuring 2,200 acts from 62 foreign countries.
“In 2016, we plan to continue our tradition of bringing attendees a comprehensive mix of brand new, up-and-coming, international and legendary performers planted all over Austin in bars, clubs, parks, churches and elsewhere,” organisers said.
This year’s festival takes place from March 15-20, 2016 with artists being announced daily.
