John Legend to Headline Handpicked SXSW Showcase

SXSW is jam packed with talent to discover every year with an overwhelming amount of acts to catch. On top of smaller talent, this year will bring a spectacular headlining performance you won't want to miss.

John Legend is set to play his one (and only) SXSW show this year in an event presented by AXE Collective and SPIN. Continuing the partnership with AXE, Legend is set to take the stage this Thursday, 3/17 for a very special performance -- but he's not the only talent on stage.

In fact, Legend has handpicked four other noteworthy musicians to join him on stage. Of these include some of the industry's finest, featuring electro-pop duo AlunaGeorge, hip hop siblings Rae Sremmurd, former "Glee" star and now stand alone Alex Newell and LA's dreamy Gallant. The five will come together to provide five solid hours of incredible music, taking place at The Belmont Austin from 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM.


The AXE Collective is taking initiative on more than you may assume. A year-long music and film mentorship program is hosted by AXE, inspiring men and women everywhere to "Find Your Magic" and embrace their true selves. John Legend is in full swing of the movement, mentoring and giving insight with the AXE Collective to give aspiring musicians the tools they need to find that magic, and a platform to share it with the world.
