The French Bureau Export returns to Austin for the third year, celebrating France’s well known and up-and-coming artists at SXSW 2012. The French Bureau Export will be kicking off the first music day of SXSW this year with two parties on Wednesday March 14th. The Bureau Export /Angers Loire-Valley Party will usher in the day’s events 12-6pm at Brush Square and The Bureau Export & Agency Group Party will keep the entertainment going throughout the night 8pm-2am at The Mohawk. The French Bureau Export has also partnered with La Blogotheque, the French music and video site that has pioneered the “Takeaway Shows” technique. La Blogtheque will be on-site filming both French Bureau Export parties.
In addition to the two official showcases, The French Bureauexport lends its support to many other French artists performing at this year’s SXSW. A full list of French artists at SXSW 2012 is here, and check out the France Rocks Austin 2012 sampler below.
