The Purple One, Prince, will be making a splash at this year’s SXSW festival in Austin, Texas. He will likely be performing his latest single, Screwdriver, and will also likely perform Bambi again like he did recently on the Jimmy Fallon show. Check out more details below on how you can get in.
The Rumors are true: Prince is set to take the stage at the South By Southwest music conference for the first time. The Purple One is getting a specially remodeled stage at La Zona Rosa in downtown Austin, a source confirmed to HitFix.
The festival this year is already boasting music’s biggest names like Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the Flaming Lips and Dave Grohl’s Sound City Players, but Prince’s concert will be bursting from its own seams with a 22-piece band. Prince hits the stage late Saturday night.
Furthermore, fest-goers should keep their eyes peeled for a certain awards show held during music festivities in Austin this week: His Royal Badness is slated as a “special guest” at the podium.
No word yet on how badge -holders or fans get access to the concert, stay tuned.

How to get in (from Mashable):
Having Prince in Austin at his first SXSW show will truly be a one night only experience that our Samsung Galaxy owners and friends will remember for years to come,” Todd Pendleton, Samsung’s chief marketing officer, told us.
While the private Saturday night show will wrap up Samsung’s heavy #TheNextBigThing tech and entertainment presence at SXSW, it will be tied to its TecTile Wall initiative in which owners of NFC-enabled Galaxy devices could tap tiles to unlock rewards.
Samsung will choose 250 TecTile Wall participants to attend the intimate show.
