Help over 20 KC/Lawrence bands invade Austin during South by Southwest 2011.

About this project

MidCoast Takeover is a collaboration between The Midwest Music Foundation, The Record Machine, Popwreckoning, Record Bar, Riot Room, Crosstown Station and Ink Magazine to bring over 20 Kansas City/Lawrence based artists to Austin, Texas during the South By Southwest Music Festival (sxsw.com) March 18th and 19th, 2011.

This is an incredible opportunity for our region to showcase the music it creates at the largest music festival in America. The possibilities are limitless for these artists regarding exposure, networking, and marketing opportunities- we just have to get them there.

It is time for Kansas City’s musical arts community to be recognized for its unparalleled skill, diversity, and professional caliber. It is an amazing moment for music in this city! It’s time the rest of the world knew about it.

MidCoast Takeover is a major undertaking, production wise, and our aim is to provide the best stage possible. So we’re asking for your help to cover some of the expenses (venue rental, sound, lighting, and video production). Please be a part of this exciting event to showcase the amazing talent that Kansas City and the region have to offer!
