Kanye West Confirms SXSW Appearance

Kanye West has confirmed that he will perform at this year’s South By Southwest festival after releasing another,”flashy” video teaser.

West is scheduled to give a midnight performance on March 19 at the Vevo Power Station, according to a new video, released on Idolator earlier today. The nearly two-minute video (West’s second SXSW teaser since February), features multiple appearances and song clips — clearly influenced by his most recent ‘All of the Lights’ video — ending with a marque of the singer’s name and the words “Austin,” “Vevo Power Station,” “Saturday, March 19″ and “11:59PM” flashing quickly across the screen.

This helps confirm the recent teaser at the end of February, which hinted at a secret West show at SXSW. The first video, a cryptic 30-second clip, premiered on Twitter and showed the presumed date and Austin venue while playing the opening to West’s ‘Runaway,’ a single from his recent release ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.’

This won’t be West’s first SXSW performance. In 2009, West performed at the Fader Fort with special guests Consequence, Mr. Hudson and Big Sean. There’s no word on who perform alongside him for this year’s set.
