360 is the first secret headliner at The Courtyard Presented by Rolling Stone.
The Brag Media is set to showcase its music and pop culture prowess to SXSW Sydney next week with The Courtyard Presented by Rolling Stone featuring Jim Beam Sessions — promising exclusive live performances, expert discussion, and four unmissable secret headline acts that could break the internet.
Well, make that three secret headline acts. 360 will be bringing his powerful verses to The Courtyard on Wednesday, October 18th, closing out the first day of live music at 7pm.
The acclaimed rapper may not have released a full-length studio album since 2017 (Vintage Modern), but that hasn’t stopped 360 from remaining a staple of Australian hip hop.
360 – otherwise known as Matthew James Colwell – first rose to prominence in the early 2010s when his multi-platinum second album, Falling & Flying, reached number four on the ARIA Albums Chart and earned him two ARIA Awards, including Breakthrough Artist in 2012. Support slots for Eminem and more awards success followed, as did two further top five albums.
In 2023, 360 showed that his energy and appetite for music remains as strong as ever. Following his headlining performance at The Courtyard, he’ll embark on a massive regional tour next month, a tour so big that it’s being split into two parts.
And always looking to use his platform for good, 360 has linked up with Support Act to help support the music industry through his upcoming tour, with tickets purchased to select shows yielding a donation to the charity.
