SXSW 2018: Get your sneak peek inside Fader Fort and check out the lineup

Fader Fort, that most beloved of side venues that calls Austin home during South by Southwest, opens up on Wednesday. Just like last year, it’s a guest-list-only event, with invitations sent by email. If you didn’t get your golden ticket (or you did and you’re impatient), we got a sneak peek on Tuesday inside the Fort’s new home on East Seventh Street.

There is, of course, that black-and-white stage you’ve come to know and respect.

There is also the “Jack Daniel’s Salon Barbershop,” featuring local guest barbers and a complimentary “Jack-inspired hairstyling or cut.” There’s a wheel you can spin, too, to help make that tough decision a little easier/more rock ‘n’ roll.

As promised, there will also be paddle-powered fun from Spin, a ping pong social club with locations across the country, including one opening in Austin later this spring at 213 W. 5th St.

There will also be an activation from New Balance celebrating the “iconic New Balance 574 sneaker and its original grey colorway.” And drinks. Don’t forget the drinks.

Here’s Fader Fort’s 2018 lineup. Performance times will be announced each day, and so will “special guests.” If there’s one thing Fader Fort has traditionally loved, it’s “special guests.”
