Do you love music? Snapdragon™ processors do too. They’re designed with mobile audiophiles in mind, so your music streams ultra-efficiently and sounds great at the same time. And if you’re listening to music on the go, you might as well try to find something new. That's why we teamed up with Pandora to help you discover great music at South by Southwest.

For the second consecutive year, Pandora is hosting the Pandora Discovery Den at SXSW.  The Pandora Discovery Den features an eclectic mix of over 40 artists playing live.  It's a great way to discover new music in genres ranging from electronica to hip hop to indie. Artists appearing during the week include Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Allen Stone, Dead Prez, Billy Bragg, and many more.

At the show Snapdragon will be sponsoring the Pandora Music Discovery Wall. It features Discovery Den artists and provides a link (via QR code) to the Discover the Den Web site, which allows Pandora users to easily access more information about the artists and check out similar music recommendations. We’ll also be giving away some Snapdragon powered tablets while we’re there.

You’ll also be able to listen to the Discovery Den mixtape after the event to hear all the artists featured in the Discovery Den on one Pandora station, even if you couldn’t make it to SXSW in person this year.

Stay tuned to the Snapdragon blog for more updates from SXSW and more details on what you can do to discover new music, whether you’ll be attending SXSW or not. Be sure to follow @Snapdragon on Twitter for live updates from Austin and more info on how to use Pandora to discover new music.
