Michigan. You love it. You love the lakes, the forests, the cities, and you love the culture. You love your local music scene and you love being an active participant in it. You want to live in a place where music thrives and creativity flows. 

We all know, though, thriving isn't a sure thing. The life of an artist is tough and the pull to the Coasts is real. How many times have you seen an artist feel the need to leave to find the infrastructure and support they need?

Michigan House believes deeply that art and music need to thrive in our communities. We too feel the love you feel for this scene of ours and we want to help provide more artists with the help and exposure they need to do the thing they love. For five years, we've been connecting Michigan artists to SXSW's global audience. This year we need your help.

Supporting this kickstarter will help us bring the 10 Michigan musicians below to Austin, TX to play a Michigan Music party and various other gigs around the city. This funding is vital to our ability to continue supporting Michigan's Music Scene and the thriving culture it helps to create.

So what is Michigan House?

Michigan House is the Great Lake State's experiential embassy to SXSW and it's global audience. Over six days Michigan House will give innovators and creators from around the state a platform to connect with some of the brightest minds from around the world. Check the website for the full schedule and follow the journey on Instagram.

Risks and challenges

Even in year 5 we're constantly aware of the risks and challenges that come along with trying to create a large-scale experience during one of the worlds most famous events. Our experience has taught us the levels of planning and attention to detail that are needed to make Michigan House a reality.

We're reaching out to our audience and the audiences of the 2019 Artists so that our efforts on the music side can be properly funded. We realize that failure to achieve our funding goals will limit the amount of support we can provide to the artists and may limit the value the artists are then able to get out of their trip.
