Dave Grohl announced as keynote speaker of South by Southwest
While all the focus is on racing this weekend, South by Southwest organizers are hard at work planning Austin’s biggest annual event.
On Friday, it was announced that Dave Grohl of Foo Fighter fame will be next year's keynote speaker.
Grohl, a music industry veteran, should have plenty of things to talk about.
Outside of the Foo Fighters, Grohl served as the drummer for Nirvana and has also collaborated with members of Led Zeppelin, Motorhead and Queen in the past.
The music portion of next year's South by Southwest runs from Mar. 12 - 17.
Grohl will be speaking at the Austin Convention Center on Thursday, the 14th.
