SXSW to Host "Night of the Living Dead" Focusing on The Grateful Dead and EDM
The annual South By Southwest Festival will hold a “Night of the Living Dead” conference, focusing on the touring habits established by The Grateful Dead and expanded upon by the EDM world. Presenting at the event will be Don Strasburg (President AEG Live Rocky Mountain), Lee Anderson (Agent at AM Only), Rich Schaefer (President of The Artists Organization) and Sam Hunt (Agent at The Windish Agency).
This isn’t the first time The Grateful Dead and EDM have been linked, as Warren Haynes and Skrillex got together at the Billboard Touring Conference to discuss a similar topic.
The event will be held in the Austin Convention Center, Room 16AB from 5-6 P.M. on March 12. Attendees with a music badge, platinum badge or artist wristband will have access to the conference. All further information on this event and others can be found on the SXSW website.
