Hello, Boston. Hello, Austin. Does everybody know each other?

Vanyaland is proud to announce another partnership with Berklee College of Music in co-presenting the annual Boston & Beyond party at the 2017 South-By-Southwest Music Festival. Now in our fourth year of collaboration, this year’s official SXSW party has turned up the Boston component to louder volumes and greater heights.

This year’s event goes down Friday, March 17 — that’s St. Patrick’s Day, yo — at Friends Bar on 6th Street. After a few years under the tent near the convention center, we’ve decided to take our vibrant rock and roll roadshow to the heart of Austin and deep into in the middle of the SXSW madness.

But before we get into all the other details, we have one question to ask: Do you want to play our party?

If so, use the submission form below to be considered. Because this is a Berklee spotlight, at least one member of your band or performing collective must be studying or have studied at Berklee.

We’re looking for six participants to play Boston & Beyond 2017, and those chosen in the next few weeks will be selected by a panel made up of Vanyaland and Berklee personnel. We’ll give due time to everything submitted.

Rock out.
