Pink Floyd‘s Roger Waters has been announced as a special keynoting speaker at this year’s South by Southwest 2020. While he’s reached deeply into the world of politics of late, he will be speaking about music and his career as an artist and member of Pink Floyd and beyond.
“Roger Waters is a true creative visionary, and we’re pleased to have him participate for 2020,” said Hugh Forrest, SXSW’s Chief Programming Officer.
As you well know if you’re reading here, Waters is a major hand in the classic and seminal Pink Floyd albums like Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals, and The Wall. He has toured ever since, and with The Wall “became the most successful touring solo artist ever.”
Waters produced, co-directed, and co-wrote Roger Waters: The Wall, an intensely personal road trip that deals with the loss that he has felt throughout his life due to war. In Amsterdam, June 2018, Waters filmed his US + THEM live show. US + THEM is a story of human rights, liberty, and love.
They will be announcing the other half of the interview sooner to the event.
