Featuring performances from Pussy Riot, Kristen Hersh, Perfume Genius, Horsegirl, Cuffed Up and  Self Esteem, amongst many others, FloodFest 2022 proved to be just as unmissable as in past years.

The mini-festival’s new home, the legendary Mohawk on Austin’s vibrant Red River St, proved to be to be an excellent choice for Flood’s return to SXSW. Featuring two stages of sheer eclecticism, it was entirely possible to see many of SXSW’s most talked about artists, simply by camping out in the blazing sun of Mohawk’s courtyard for both days of this triumphant event.

It would be difficult to imagine Flood not returning to Mohawk in 2023. It already feels like home. We’ll see you down the front.
