DIRECTV will be debuting the eighth season of Guitar Center Sessions, a show that features live performances and interviews with noteworthy and influential artists, starting next month. The series will air at 8 p.m. on May 4, and continue with new episodes every Sunday.
The first six episodes will be of live footage taken at SXSW in Austin, Texas. Some artists that viewers can look forward to seeing on the show include Phantogram, Soundgarden, 311, Snoop Dogg, CHVRCHES, Alice In Chains, and Cage The Elephant.
“We are incredibly proud to present our viewers with yet another season of Guitar Center Sessions,” says Dustin Hinz, Director of Music and Entertainment Marketing Guitar Center. “Season 8 brings to life the stories, songs and journeys of a remarkable line-up of iconic and influential artists. Filming live at one of the world’s biggest music festivals was the perfect way to celebrate both Guitar Center’s 50th Anniversary and the success Guitar Center Sessions has seen over the past 60 episodes.”
