One Awesome Night, Founded by Tyler Branch and Darnell Smith (Jaxz), is primed for its second stint during SXSW. Starting in 2018, One Awesome Night has become one of the biggest unofficial stages at the festival offering free admission to some of the biggest rising names in hip-hop.
The show started with the intent to create a truly awesome experience for music fans that visit the festival, as well as a platform for rising artists. Last year, the show hosted artist Flipp Dinero, Renni Rucci, Deante Hitchcock, Tyla Yahweh, and DaBaby, all of which have gone on to sign major deals or be apart of major tours both worldwide and across the US. This year, the show comes back with an even bigger line-up with a lot of bright talent primed to take the industry by storm.
Hoping to keep the night going, the two hope to expand past the festival, building on their brands Swish Worldwide and Rich Government and throw shows in major cities across the US. Be on the lookout for a One Awesome Night near you!
Some artist Featured :
GANGTIVITY : Gangtivity stands for “a collective of individuals moving forward as one towards achievement or desire.” Unity and accomplishments are our missions. Our inspiration comes from the neighborhoods we were built in; a place where trouble is around every corner, and you have to find peace in yourself to ignore the temptations. In order to do that, we all find our own unique way to take us away from it by constantly creating and spreading our positive movement; one that the kids around the world who go through the same thing as us can relate to.
