It is the responsibility of the artist to provide the backline necessary to perform their showcase. Please let your stage manager know if you are bringing backline and are willing to share, or if you need to rent or borrow backline. Your stage manager will provide backline company recommendations based on your needs and put you in touch with other bands on the showcase to coordinate sharing if desired. All liability for damage to any equipment is solely the responsibility of the artist, not SXSW.
Please share all gear sharing and/or rental details with your stage manager.
