The Courtyard Presented by Rolling Stone

Rolling Stone will be activating at SXSW Sydney via "The Courtyard" ft. Jim Beam Sessions — bringing exclusive live performances, expert discussion, opportunities to win major prizes, and secret headline acts that promise to break the internet.

In partnership with Jim Beam, Rolling Stone has curated a diverse lineup of some of the most exciting emerging names in music today. From the high-strung rock of Adam Newling, to indie upstarts The Terrys, the cinematic psych of Telenova, the explosive hip hop of First Nations rapper Barkaa, and much more — the expansive lineup is set to bring an unmissable selection of acts to SXSW Sydney.

With help from Old El Paso, an all-star lineup of new talent will take to the stage to ‘make some noise’. What’s more, expect artist interviews and exclusive content brought to life in the official Wrap Room.

In a groundbreaking collaboration between the worlds of artistry and technology, industry leaders will converge at SXSW Sydney to unearth the insights each sector can glean from the other.

Presented by Twilio, the discussion will delve into the intersection of art and technology, highlighting how artists possess an unparalleled ability to hack algorithms and achieve virality, while tech excels in creating one-to-one customer relationships at scale. This dynamic exchange of ideas will set the stage for a future-facing bridge between these two industries.

The panel will be moderated by Luke Girgis, CEO of The Brag Media, Variety, and Rolling Stone Australia, and will feature prominent voices such as Liz Adeniji, Regional Vice President at Segment, Jaddan Comerford, CEO & Founder of UNIFIED Music Group, and Wayne Baskin, co-founder and CTO of Superhero.
