OUTlander Music Festival Features LGBT Artists At SXSW

The OUTlander Spring Festival is showcasing LGBT musicians through March 16th at SXSW.

The OUTlander Spring Festival, presented by LOGO, will be the largest showcase of local, national, and international LGBTQ musicians performing during the SXSW festival in Austin.

SXSW hosts LGBT meet-ups each year and plenty of queer off-shoot music festivals. The OUTlander Project gives queer folks even more reason to check out the roster. Though this project is relatively new to SXSW, it has been promoting the work of queer artists since 2010.
