The 2016 South By Southwest festival starts next week with the film and interactive sessions—and today, organizers announced that President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will be keynote speakers. Nice get, SXSW!

It's always an eclectic collection of songs by some of the nation's best up-and-coming acts in just about every genre imaginable. You can stream or download the whole thing here.
