France returns to Austin's SXSW Festival, one of the largest in the world, in a big way in 2016, with an impressive lineup of established and emerging acts that span genres, like Fakear, Cocorosie, L.E.J., Marina Kaye, Talisco, Alice on the Roof and many more. France Rocks is organizing three showcases during the music portion of SXSW, which runs from March 15 - 20, 2016. These events include a Lunch with French Tech at Brush Square Park on Tuesday March 15th, a showcase that evening at Trinity Hall on 6th St, and a Thursday evening showcase at Central Presbyterian Church.
