In its 17th year, Fader Fort takes place over March 13-15 and continues to reign as a widely coveted attraction for festival goers and SXSW attendees alike. Providing three days of entertainment and live performances by up and coming artists, Fader Fort is well-known as a place where emerging talent quickly hit it big, including past performers like Drake, Billie Ellish, Cardi B and more. This year’s performers will be announced this week at thefader.com, as well as Fader’s Instagram and Twitter.

This year, Xbox is launching the VIP Xbox Game Pass Gaming Lounge, an interactive space for emerging artists and creatives to experience their favorite games from the 100+ titles on the Xbox Game Pass library. There will also be a Xbox Official Gear station where VIP attendees – and some lucky winners on social media – will have a chance to get customized gear while kicking back and listening to the soundtrack of incredible Fader Fort performances.

This Xbox Session will air on March 21 on the Mixer Xbox Channel and the Xbox YouTube Channel.

For all Fader Fort attendees, waiting in line this year is actually going to be fun – with Team Xbox doing in-line contests and social giveaways throughout the festival.
