The British Music Embassy returns to SXSW in 2018 for its 11th year with the first six night time official SXSW showcases in partnership with AIM, BBC Music, the Department for International Trade (DIT), PPL and PRS for Music. The showcases will put a spotlight on the best of new British music and will take place at the Latitude 30 venue in Austin, Texas, 12–17 March 2018.

Every year, The British Music Embassy takes over the venue for the week, playing host to some of the most exciting UK talent. With a wide spread across a variety of genres from brand new grassroots bands to more established artists, these showcases have become the go-to hub for many SXSW goers.
