The 2012 South by Southwest Music Festival has announced that Bruce Springsteen will serve as the event’s keynote speaker, addressing attendees on Thursday, March 15 at the Austin Convention Center. With Springsteen joining the ranks of past speakers such as Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Robert Plant, Pete Townshend, Smokey Robinson, and Neil Young, SXSW said in a press release that The Boss’s “recordings include time-tested classics of rock and acoustic-based albums celebrating folk traditions. His live shows are truly fervent celebrations of the communal power of music. As SXSW fosters connection and communication in the music community, this event will undoubtedly further those aims in an unique conference session.”
