We’re pumped to be heading to Austin for SXSW 2012. We’ve got a ton of exciting things planned for SXSW Music Week (March 13 – 18), so be sure to check out the Logitech and Ultimate Ears Facebook and Twitter pages for all the details next week. We’ll be keeping you up to date on the latest SXSW news via our Music Today Facebook tab, which goes live March 11. We will be posting behind the scenes videos with bands we are hanging with backstage as well as giving out daily free music downloads from our favorite South By artists. And of course to celebrate this great month in music we are also giving away free Logitech UE 350vi earphones ($60) bundled with music from a SXSW artist every week day in March. Here’s the complete run down for the week:
- March 12 @ 7:00 p.m. – The 3rd annual gdgt Live event at the Austin Music Hall, where we’ll be showcasing some of our latest and greatest gadgets. The event is free, all-ages (free drinks for those of you 21+!), and open to the public. While you’re at our demo station, ask for a Logitech UE Austin pin and sport it throughout the week. Our roving SXSW street teams will be on the lookout for people wearing our pins – get spotted and you may be surprised with a Logitech UE prize. You can also Tweet a picture of yourself wearing the pin to enter to win a pair of UE 7 Pro Custom In-Ear Monitors ($850 value), just post and tag #LogitechUE.
- March 14 – 17 – The Music Gear Expo where you’ll find a cornucopia of guitars, keyboards, amps and most importantly: Logitech UE! It’s FREE and open to the general public, and you have the chance to demo the highest quality Custom In-Ear Monitors on the market. We’ll also have an audiologist on hand taking FREE ear impressions if you think you are ready to get fitted for a pair of Custom In-Ear Monitors.
- March 16 and 17 – We’re getting together with our friends at Nylon TV and Thrillist to host two all day concerts. On Friday, we’ll be on the Roof Terrace of the W Austin from 1-9 p.m., and on Saturday, we’re partying from noon until 6 p.m. at the Malverde on 2nd Street. Both days, we’ll be bringing you sounds from 20+ artists, including UK #1 Pop star, Cher Lloyd (Simon Cowell’s protege), Kimbra, Of Monsters and Men, Body Language, Matthew Dear, and MTVU 2012 Woodie Nominee, T.Mills. At both events, we’ll be offering Logitech UE demos and giveaways.
We can’t wait to see those of you making the trip to Austin next week, and if you can’t make the trip, check us out Facebook and Twitter to get in the spirit and win Logitech UE earphones and SXSW-featured music.
