President Obama Is Holding A Music Festival At The White House ‘Coz He’s An Absolute Legend
President Obama has officially earned the title of ‘Coolest President Ever’ after announcing that he’ll be throwing a music festival named ‘SXSL (South By South Lawn)’ at the White House.
The one-day fest, which was inspired by the South by Southwest festival, will feature a whole bunch of musical performances by some big names (yet to be announced) as well as up-and-coming artists. Judging by Obama’s favourite artists and his pure fiyahh summer playlists on Spotify—which include Kendrick Lamar, Jay Z, Chance The Rapper, and even our very own Courtney Barnett—we have no doubt that the line-up will be absolutely mint.

‘SXSL’ will also feature interactive panel discussions focused on creating positive change in the world, and will be home to the 3rd Annual White House Student Film Festival.
Unfortunately, you can only get your hands on these coveted tickets on a nomination basis if you live in the U.S. but we have no doubt that we’ll be hearing all about SXSL down here in Aus!
