The 10 Best Moments of SXSW: Day 2

FUSE TV - The 10 Best Moments of SXSW: Day 2

With 2,000 bands, countless showcases and unending parties, every day at South by Southwest yields crazy moments both planned and otherwise. We've got the Day 2 Spotify Playlist ready to go, but here are our 10 favorite moments from Day 2 of music's biggest festival. 

1. Kanye West Returns: The text from a friend was short and to the point: "Walk to Belmont club. Kanye soon." In 2009, West performed a (not-at-all) surprise show at SXSW's Fader Fort. Last year, it was the VEVO Power Station. This year, the uber-rapper, along with Big Sean, dropped in on 2 Chainz' set at the SOBs 30th Anniversary Concert to perform verses from "Marvin Gaye and Chardonnay" and "Can't Tell Me Nothing" before quickly leaving the stage. It was a brief moment, but, for everyone in the club, a moment nonetheless. Check out video below (Vibe via Miss Info)
