The Quantum Collective’s Southwest Invasion will be touching down in Austin, TX from March 17-19 for their 5th annual concert series and lifestyle village. The free, all ages event drew over 12,000 fans to the Whole Foods Market flagship store’s rooftop venue last year for over 30 concerts by emerging and legacy bands. In addition to the music, the Southwest Invasion will once again play host to interactive opportunities with goods and services developed by microenterprises and socially responsible brands.

“Our event brings communities together that have much in common, connecting them with one another to build an even larger, new and vibrant group,” says Quantum Collective co-founder Liz Leahy. “Southwest Invasion curates on a level of discovery, creating breakthrough success for the bands and the brands involved,” adds co-founder Dan Silver.

Imagine Dragons, the X Ambassadors, Pentatonix and many more have played at the Southwest Invasion just before their careers broke through to the mainstream. Similarly, innovative companies such as FitBit and Amazon MP3 took off not long after their introduction to Southwest Invasion audiences.

Bands and lifestyle partners for the 2016 Southwest Invasion will be announced in the coming weeks, please keep checking our website, and twitter page (@swiFEST) for the latest news and information.
