Announcing The FADER FORT 2016

We’re returning to Austin in March, this time for six days and an all-new second event.

March 01, 2016

For the first time, The FADER FORT is expanding its programming to six full days, and two events.

The FADER FORT Presented by Converse, our annual showcase of great music, will be returning to Austin for its 15th year. From March 16-19, we'll host performances from Metro Boomin, Sheer Mag, Davido, N.A.A.F.I, Desiigner, and Kamaiyah. More than 30 additional acts will be announced in the days leading up to the event.


On March 14 and 15, we'll open the FORT for an all-new event, The Toyota Prius Presents The Arcade at The FADER FORT. The Arcade will celebrate some of the most innovative minds, artists, and brands that intersect music, artistic creation and technology. The full lineup for The Arcade will be announced on on March 8.

The FADER FORT is a guest list-only event. This year, guests will receive an invite via email. There will be no public RSVP, and private invites will be nontransferable. RSVP information for both events will be distributed to invited guests on Wednesday, March 2. The music portion of The FORT will stream live on Media attending SXSW and wanting to apply for press access to The FADER FORT can enter their credentials for consideration and approval here.

The FADER FORT is made possible this year by Converse, Toyota Prius, Getty Images, Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey, Budweiser, Red Bull, and SiriusXM.
