2019 might just be Ben&Ben’s year. After releasing their album “Limawasa Street,” getting into John Mayer’s radar during his Hong Kong performance, and appearing in their first feature film “LSS,” the nine-piece folk phenomenon takes on America at South by Southwest (SXSW) 2020.
SXSW will take place at Austin, Texas from Mar. 16 to 22 next year. Joining them in this festival’s diverse lineup are more acts hailing from Asia such as Grrrl Gang from Indonesia, DTSQ from South Korea, Sleeping Brain from Taiwan, Hiperson from China, The fin. from Japan, and many more.
Ben&Ben joins the roster of other Filipino musicians who have also played in this iconic festival, like Turbo Goth, The Flying Ipis, and BP Valenzuela. Can’t wait for this folk-pop supergroup to take over a global stage!
