In other SXSW-related news, a recent report looking into safety at the Austin, Texas event suggested that unofficial showcases would have to be cancelled or moved from a ‘perimeter’ - organisers have yet to announce a decision on plans to improve security at the event, following a tragic car crash at the 2014 festival.
