SXSW Gaming Closing Party Featuring Alan Walker and Feature Cuts

Feb 242017

SXSW Gaming has huge things in store for us at Monster Energy Outbreak House this year! On Saturday, March 18 the official SXSW Gaming Closing Party will feature live performances by Alan Walker and Feature Cuts, as the perfect ending to this legendary gaming festival.

For the past 6 years, The Monster Energy Outbreak Tour has provided fans with early access to ‘the next big thing’ by partnering artists on the verge of breaking through with sponsor brands, upgraded production and larger venues at an affordable ticket price. Past artists we have worked with have included Kendrick Lamar, The Chainsmokers, Fetty Wap, Iggy Azalea, Logic and Post Malone, resulting in their largest headlining tours at the time. Monster Energy’s Outbreak team executes six national tours each year across six different musical genres, along with a week-long list of exclusive events at the annual SXSW conference.


This year, we’re proud to be partnering with the Monster Energy Outbreak House to bring Alan Walker and Feature Cuts to the inaugural SXSW Gaming Conference & Festival.

Alan Walker is already one of the most streamed artists in the world on Spotify. At just 19 years old and with only 3 singles released so far, he has already received huge success with over 20 million social media followers, more than 1.5 billion views on his YouTube channel and recently having been awarded with a Norwegian Grammy. Alan Walker’s has worked with Sia and Rihanna, his singles are certified Gold and Platinum in 29 countries and he had the two biggest international songs in China in 2016. 2017 is sure to be the year of Alan Walker!


Feature Cuts (Andrew Michie) began his music career towards the end of 2011 producing and performing in the underground scene in Houston, Texas. Extremely passionate when it comes to sound design and production, Feature Cuts continues to pursue many different styles and genres, continuing to evolve with time and inspiration.


The SXSW Gaming Closing Party is a unmissable experience and the perfect way to wrap up the amazing event.


Taking place immediately after the Gaming Awards, the SXSW Gaming Closing Party will be available to all Saturday and three-day Gaming wristbands as well as SXSW badges.
