It has been announced that Prince and A Tribe Called Quest will be performing at La Zona Rosa on March 16th as part of the SXSW closing festivities sponsored by the Samsung Galaxy Experience.  If you didn’t know already, there are two major initiatives that Samsung has going on at SXSW – #PowerOn and TecTile Rewards.

  • For Galaxy owners running low on power, they can simply tweet #PowerOn to @SamsungMobileUS for delivery of a brand new fully charged batter via a bike messenger.  (definitely solves a major pain point in the festival experience!)
  • Galaxy owners can tap TecTile installations throughout Austin for free offers from local businesses. Those who unlock all 11 rewards will automatically be entered for a chance to win one of more than 200 free tickets to Saturday’s concert featuring Prince and A Tribe Called Quest.
