MTV brought the Woodies to SXSW this week, and the revamped show was all about the new age of music discovery online.
The reimagined show was dubbed “10 for 16” featuring some of the most popular rising acts, and hosted by A$AP Rocky.
“Tonight is all about the music,” said Flacko in his opening monologue. “From all the artists around the world releasing tracks that you hear on mixtapes or SoundClouds, fans finding new artists on playlists, and most importantly, artists shouting out other artists. So this Woodies 10 for 16, we’re celebrating artists that you discovered from all across the world, pushing boundaries and redefining the music you love.”
The music took center stage as CHVRCHES, Jack Garratt, and BØRNS performed during the one-hour live show from Lady Bird Lake in Austin, Texas. The event also featured Anderson .Paak, Jidenna, and Kehlani, who performed songs including “You Should Be Here,” “Did I,” and “Alive.”
