Converse to host Fader Fort at 2015 SXSW Music Festival


One of the highlights at SXSW Music Festival each year is The Fader Fort, it is on everyone’s list of the things you must do at SXSW. In fact each time when there is a public RSVP available, the list fills up in no time and the servers tend to crash trying to handle all that internet activity. It’s very much like when everyone is trying to get their hands on the increasingly ever popular San Diego Comic-Con tickets.

The Fader Fort presented by Converse will return to Austin, Texas for the 2015 SXSW Music Festival from March 18-21. They will host performances from artists including Migos, Hudson Mohawke, Bleachers, Girlpool, and Vince Staples, with more than 30 additional acts to be announced in the days leading up to the event. Last year acts included Damon Albarn and Snoop Dog, the acts for 2015 will be just as exciting.

The Fader launched the Fader Fort 14 years ago. Over that time, they have been amazed by how much the event has grown, and how many music fans they have been able to let through their doors each year. This year,they have partnered again with Converse to help make this their best fort yet.

The Fader Fort is a guest list-only event. This year, guests will receive an invite via email. Sadly this year there will be no public RSVP, and private invites will be non transferable. For those unable to claim one of the exclusive invites,the entire Fader Fort will stream live on, powered by Dell I Intel.
