Nas

Nas stepped to the stage and knocked out his catalogue which spans over 20 years of hits and classics. The crowd went nuts from the kick off his set to the tune “Hate Me Now” and continued to knock out classic after classic all night long.”

Haerts

"Brooklyn’s Haerts took to the stage in Austin for a well received set of electro pop that explored just about every human emotion experienced. Vocalist Nina Fabi’s voice is a wonderful stand out and definitely makes you stop in your place and vibe out. Good stuff!!”

Earl Sweatshirt at Red Bull Sound Select Party

Earl Sweatshirt took to the rowdy stage and went through his catalogue of cult classics. Prior to his set the crowd could be hear chanting ‘Earl’ during the previous artist’s sets. Once Earl took to the stage it was absolute mayhem complete with stage diving and various other shenanigans. One of the best shows I have seen here this year!”

Banks (Live)

Banks took a few steps onto the stage and those who knew her roared while those who did not were instantly sold on her musical delivery by the second song. Banks was backed by members of The Park, who rocked out while she commanded attention with her soothing sounds to a packed house.”
