Shawn Mendes, Gunna, Young Thug, and Kygo to Perform at Moody Amphitheater for SXSW

Three-day concert series takes over Waterloo Park March 17-19

In the most big-name South by Southwest-week music announcement to hit thus far in 2022, a concert series is set to transpire at the Moody Amphitheater at Waterloo Park from March 17-19 featuring Shawn Mendes, Gunna, Young Thug, and Kygo.

The event, put on by Billboard and Samsung Gallery, will feature Gunna and Young Thug on Thursday; Kygo, Frank Walker, and Forester on Friday, and Shawn Mendes and Sabastian Yatra on Saturday with DJ Rosegold and DJ VRYWVY providing additional bumps each night.

Billboard’s parent company is P-MRC, which became SXSW’s partner in April of 2021 when the organization needed a financial lifeline.

According to a press release:

A reserved number of tickets will be made available exclusively to existing SXSW Music and Platinum badge holders and SXSW Music Festival Wristband holders. A limited number of tickets are open to the public starting today. Additional concert series details and ticketing information can be found here. 

Tickets for the series, dubbed “The Stage at SXSW,” cost $95 plus fees. An unspecified portion of the ticket proceeds will go to the Waterloo Greenway Conservatory.
