Because he’s officially the coolest POTUS, Obama will be hosting a one day music festival at the White House. He is calling it “South by South Lawn: A White House Festival of Ideas, Art, and Action.” as he was inspired by a keynote speaker at SXSW this year. The speaker spoke out about digitizing the voting process and providing access to underprivileged areas. The festival will be held October 3rd and Obama will be working in partnership with SXSW and the American Film Institute. The event will feature panel speakers, live musical performances, and a film festival by students. The panels will focus exclusively on influencers and those doing good in the world.
The fest is the last opportunity you’ll have to party at the White House with the Obamas, and while the lineup is unannounced, judging by Obama’s excellent taste, we know it’s gonna be good. You can nominate yourself to attend the event here.
