After an incredible 12 month period in his home territory, Melbourne based rapper 360 hasn’t showed any signs of slowing down and has firmly set his sights on breaking into the US and Canadian markets. After the announcement late last year that Sixty would make his very first trip to America to play the infamous SXSW Music Conference, we are stoked to now announce a whole swag of special showcase performances and events that will round off his visit.
First up Six will be playing three very special showcases as a part of SXSW. OnWednesday March 13, 360 will play the Meduse Lounge in Austin then on Thursday March 14 he will take the stage at The JR, as a part of the official The Agency Group Showcase, and finally on Friday March 15, Six will join a host of other Australian talent playing the Aussie BBQ showcase at Maggie Mays. From Austin 360 will then head to New York City to play his first ever American headline show at the Santos Party House on Monday March 18.
After NYC Six will travel to Canada for the first time playing a industry showcase at The Hoxton in Toronto on Thursday March 21 as a part of the Canadian Music Week. Whilst in Canada our mate Sixty will also be making a very special guest appearance and will perform two of his own songs at the 13th Annual Canadian Independent Music Awards.
The awards will take place during the Canadian Music Week activities on Friday March 22 at The Kool Haus in Toronto. The night will honour the year’s best in Canadian independent music – from the breakout success of Canadians Carly Rae Jepsen, Marianas Trench and deadmau5 to the noteworthy achievements of Internationals fun., The Lumineers and Calvin Harris – the show will award artists across 37 categories and feature special performances from nominated artists, including Matt Mays, Diamond Rings, Yukon Blonde, The Wooden Sky, Canailles and Cadence Weapon.
