SHARE

WorldArts along with The Quantum Collective are pleased to announce the annual Southwest Invasion, in association with Whole Foods Market® and Whole Planet Foundation®, on Friday, March 20th & Saturday, March 21st at the Whole Foods Flagship Rooftop Plaza and Courtyard in Austin, TX.

For the fourth year in a row, one of the most talked about live music events of the year is gearing up and will be better than ever. This free, all-ages event is open to the public and promises to be two full days and nights of music, food and fun. Continuing the tradition, the main stage will be on the Whole Foods Rooftop overlooking Austin, and new this year is a second stage on the ground level in the Whole Foods Courtyard, which will host 16 of the 40+ acts.

For music lovers who are unable to make it to Austin next week, presenting partner WorldArts is making it possible for them to enjoy the live music at Southwest Invasion via a live stream on both Friday and Saturday. The live stream will be viewable on the WorldArts website, WorldArts.com. Earlier this month, WorldArts offered an opportunity through their website for two artists to perform at the Southwest Invasion. On Thursday, positively overwhelmed with great submissions, they selected three independent artists—Josiah Leming, Novel Nature and Night Argent—as their winners, who will also be provided with an expense-paid trip to Austin.

Whole Planet Foundation, whose mission is poverty alleviation through microcredit in communities around the world that supply Whole Foods Market stores with products, has teamed up with the event to create the 2015 Quantum Collective Musicians For Microcredit, aimed to raise money for their important cause. By making a donation of at least $ 10 USD to this campaign by Tuesday, March 17th, donors will be entered to win a pair of VIP passes for either Friday or Saturday (winners will be randomly selected and notified by email prior to the event).
