Perez Hilton returned to SXSW this year with the sixth installment of Perez Hilton’s “One Night In Austin” held at the Austin Music Hall on Saturday, March 16th.
Macklemore, an ubiquitious presence at SXSW this year, totally killed it.
The event successfully raised $53,000 for charity. Ticket proceeds will benefit The VH1 Save The Music Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to restoring instrumental music education in America’s public schools and GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network, a non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring safe schools for all and creating a world in which every child learns to respect and accept all people, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.
This year’s event was topped with a special surprise appearance by Fall Out Boy and also included performances by: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Lissie, Paloma Faith, Stooshe, Charli XCX, Brooke Candy, Angel Haze, Capital Cities, Wynter Gordon, and Kerli and Foxes.
