Apple first announced the SXSW concert series last week, as an expansion of its long-running iTunes Festival in the UK. The festival will offer five nights of music, beginning on March 11 at Austin City Limits Live at the Moody Theater in Austin, Texas.
While the SXSW concerts are presented for free, tickets are given to attendees on a lottery basis. Live and on-demand streams of the shows will be available through the iTunes Store on iOS devices and computers, the iTunes Festival app on iOS devices, and the Apple TV.

I have not idea who he is either, but since I was stoked that Soundgarden was playing it shouldn't be shocking that I haven't listened to him judging from the above picture.

I've never heard of him, but he's got that neat attempting-to-get-out-of-a-straight jacket pose which is so cool!

He's fantastic. One of the best hip-hop artists to emerge in a long time.
Will he be performing again with Imagine Dragons like they did at the Grammys?

ADHD and Black Boy Fly are my favorite K Dot songs. King of the west coast right now
Anyone who watched the Grammy's should know who Kendrick Lamar is

I love how balanced the lineup is to suit different musical tastes.
Personally, I'd tune in for Soundgarden and Soundgarden only... I'm not familiar with most of the other lineup's music.
But kudos for catering to a wide audience, since not everyone can be open-minded about music genres other than their own, as some of the comments here clearly show.
Apple is great, but it could be better. I don't shy away from pointing out how, just to please its… um... fans.

Someone needs to correct that info. No, the concerts are not free to attend.
To get in the drawings you need to have a SXSW Badge or wristband. From their website:
"To determine which SXSW badge holders will be admitted to these shows, SXSW will conduct ticket drawings, which grant priority entry for specific SXSW credential types only. No other credentials are eligible to enter these drawings. Tuesday night's show will be open to all badge types. All following shows will be available to Music and Platinum badges and SXSW music festival and artist wristbands only. Each winner may bring a guest, but the guest must also have a SXSW Badge or a SXSW music festival or artist wristband."
The cheapest way to get in is with a music wristband, which are sold out and costed $189 (a small number of them will be available onsite). Then you need to enter the drawing (it's not automatic) and then if you're lucky you get to go.
Looks like the best bet to enjoy these shows will be at home.
