Shell House at SXSW
March 12-14, 2023 Antone’s Nightclub – 305 E 5th St., Austin, TX
Welcome to Shell House at SXSW! We’re taking over Antone’s for an action-packed three days, where you can explore how Shell and its partners are working together to help reach the goal of Net-Zero by 2050. From supply chain innovations to climate-smart agriculture, circular economies to A.I., and even decarbonizing sport, you’re invited to join in a lineup of expert-led discussions, networking, and interactive experiences (spoiler: there’s an AR/VR arcade).
If you need a break, head upstairs to rest, recharge (yourself and your devices), and have a snack.
We can’t wait to see you at SXSW.
Shell House 2023 SXSW Schedule
Recharge & Refuel Lounge
The Shell House will feature the Recharge & Refuel Lounge – a networking and working lounge space for registered SXSW attendees to use during the conference with power, Wi-Fi, games, food and beverages and more opportunities to engage with the Shell brand and learn more about the path to net zero by 2050.
In the energy arcade, two immersive virtual reality experiences open to all Shell House visitors. One explores offshore wind, the other hydrocarbon conversion; during the day, the experience is educational, while at night they change into VR games. What uses more energy in your home? Six hours of laptop use or making coffee? Stop by the Shell Energy Vending Machine to test your home energy IQ, learn interesting energy facts and walk away with a sustainable prize.
Music at Shell House
While there’s lots going on at Shell House during the day, don’t forget to stay after the sun sets to check out some of the great artists lighting up the Antone’s stage.
Anders Drerup Band
You don’t want to miss the spontaneous and exciting live performance of the Anders Drerup Band. With hints of blues, country, rock and roll, R&B, and Latino inspired music, the Anders Drerup Band’s Americana style brings something for everyone to enjoy.
Ricky Duran Band
With his latest full-length album reaching #1 on iTunes, the runner-up on season 17 of the Voice, Ricky Duran pulls his music and influence from a variety of genres, transcending trends, turning him into an irrefutable talent and electric performer.
From vintage funky pop to traditional folk to pure B&B ballads, Cas Haley brings a lot of flavors to his music. Bouncing back from personal and professional setbacks, and charting his own path, Cas Haley uses his songs as an internal sanctuary, for which we are glad he does.
After becoming the first black woman to win ‘Best Guitarist’ at the 2019 Austin Music Awards, Jackie Venson isn’t done there. She’s since gone on to tour with multi-Grammy award winner Gary Clark Jr. which has skyrocketed her popularity, helping her gain even more fans with her thoughtful lyrics, screamin’ guitar solos, and unforgettable voice.
