To kick off its highly anticipated eighth season, the free outdoor concert series will head to Austin during SXSW to spotlight an eclectic lineup of acts, including Kehlani, Mick Jenkins, Beach Slang, Alex G, and Day Wave, as well as DJ sets by Noodles and Kristin Kontrol.

unnamedHosted at Cheer Up Charlies (900 Red River St. Austin, TX 78701) on March 16th, the first event of the season will once again bring together music fans, bands, and a bonfire under the big sky; offering attendees complimentary frosty beverages and free JanSport swag.

Available to SXSW badge holders and the general public, RSVPs for the event are open now at

The event is 21+ to attend and admission is free, but space is limited and entry will be granted based on venue capacity. SXSW badge holders will receive priority entry for the event, but there will be ample room for Public RSVPs as well. The first 50 people in line for the event will receive a free JanSport backpack.

Following its kick-off in Austin, The JanSport Bonfire Sessions will return to Montreal and San Francisco. Details on future events will be announced later this spring.
