One of our favorite awards show has just announced three of its performers and we couldn’t be more stoked about it. The mtvU Woodie Awards take place during the South By Southwest Music Festival in Austin, Texas on Sunday, March 16th and Childish Gambino has been selected to be the headlining performer for the evening!
Along with Gambino, Chicago rapper Vic Mensa and fun.’s Jack Antonoff’s new band Bleachers will give their first ever live performance on the Woodie stage. So far, this show might possibly be the best Woodie Awards yet!

Rapper Vic talked about being a part of the Woodies and to say he’s excited would be an understatement. “I’m super stoked to be playing the Woodies festival this year,” he said. “I’m crowd surfing through everything so the girls better get their swimsuits ready.” Yup, that’s going to be one memorable performance.
