Festival season is upon us once again! Next week, March 16-17, 2023, global footwear brand Dr. Martens will host a live music showcase at the renowned SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas. As an extension of Dr. Martens’s annual free concert series, DM’s Presents, the brand’s SXSW stage will host an electrifying two-day lineup of bold bands and emerging artists.

  Since its debut in 2013, Dr. Martens on Rainy Street has become a fan-favorite festival experience for music, fashion, and cultural enthusiasts. Brought to life by a mission to bond communities through accessible live music and borderless creativity, Dr. Martens at SXSW is a place for people to be themselves and build connections through shared experiences and passions.

The two-day experience will feature endless entertainment, free tattoos by local Austin tattoo artists Michael Williams & Nick Freidline, and a killer music line-up at Clive Bar, 609 Davis Street in Austin, Texas. Thursday’s performers include Danny Brown with supporting acts Armani White, Haru Nemuri, Divino Niño, Lime Garden, and Joon. Friday will see Balming Tiger with Priyanka, Ron Gallo, Dream Wife, Enumclaw, and Mauskovic Dance Band
