South by Southwest, stylized as SXSW and colloquially referred to as South By, is an annual international conglomeration of parallel film, interactive media, and music festivals and conferences organized jointly that take place in mid-March in Austin, Texas, United States. It began in 1987 and has continued to grow in both scope and size every year, it is the music industry's biggest and most attended entertainment conference in the world. The festival is known for helping to break artists' careers like Billie Eilish, Kendrick Lamar and Anderson .Paak, who all played several showcases at the festival and conference prior to their mainstream success.

International R&B artist Kiana V was the only one selected from the Philippines to perform and she will co-headline a showcase taking place at the Higher Ground on Wednesday. Kiana is slated to perform 12A-1240A, just as Wednesday night turns into Thursday morning.

The showcase is free to attend to all SXSW badge holders and also features JBABE (India), Sara King (Dallas), Kayan (India), Amra (Mongolia), MEYY (Belgium) & local Angelica Rahe from Austin. Kiana will perform right before Angelica for forty minutes where you'll hear a mix of her hit singles with new feel-good anthems like the critically acclaimed "Heartbeat on Me."

Future episodes will include Kiana's first time experiences in Austin, Texas during SXSW and Las Vegas, where she will attend the GRAMMYS for the first time.
