NAS SXSW Takeover Mass Appeal

Mass Appeal & Grooveshark’s SXSW Takeover Recap

This year we pulled out all the stops for our SXSW Takeover. We had a hip hop legend – Nas. Sub-culture super stars – Flying Lotus and Thundercat. And even a jazz trio – BADBADNOTGOOD. From hip hop heads to hipsters, we brought a little something for everyone down to Austin, Texas.

We’d like to give a big thank you to our co-presenter Grooveshark and all of our sponsors: Slowbucks, Monster Headphones, Subway, New Era, Rabbl, Al Capone and Beartrap. Most importantly, thank you to the fans! You braved the long lines for a few hours of great music and made it a night to remember. Check out the recap video above and Van Style’s photos from the event below.
