SXSW Underscores the Importance of a Great Band Bio

SXSW is gearing up for the 2019 mega festival and Band Bios found this great piece of advice in its 5 Showcase Application Tips from the SXSW Music Festival Team:


Hone Your Biography
“Submitting a clear, thorough, and succinct artist biography serves two key purposes. Of course, the music festival programming team wants to know who you are, where you come from, and where you’re going so we have some context when making a decision on your application. Beyond your application, if you are invited to be an official SXSW Showcasing Artist our marketing team will reference your biography in our own campaigns leading up to the music festival. Because of this, it’s very important your biography reflect how you want your band and music to be described.”  – Rory Burbeck, Music Festival Programmer


It’s more important than ever to have well-written band/artist biography in your portfolio. Contact Band Bios today or purchase one of our fail-proof tools to ensure that your Band Bio is good enough for SXSW – or any other festival – that you are applying for this year.
