SXSW does not provide or pay for backline.
Please let your stage manager know what backline you are bringing, if you are willing to share, and/or if you need to rent backline. Your stage manager will provide backline company recommendations based on your needs and put you in touch with other artists 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 provide all backline sharing and/or rental details with your stage manager.
