Yoko Ono Featured Speaker for SXSW


She’ll also perform live on
March 19.
don’t forget that Bob Geldof will deliver the keynote address (on March 17).




South By Southwest (SXSW) just announced that Yoko Ono will be a
featured speaker for the 25th Music Conference and Festival. Ms. Ono will sit
down with Jody Denberg for a SXSW Interview on Friday, March 18th.


From her pioneering work in the Fluxus movement of the 1960s to
the recent Imagine Peace Tower
in Iceland,
Ono’s art has challenged and informed, melding the personal to the universal in
simple and unique ways. Her marriage and creative collaboration with John Lennon
was a love story played out on the global stage. Ono’s music laid the
groundwork for the sounds of punk rock and new wave. Recently, Ono has had five
consecutive dance singles charting at #1 on the top of the Billboard Dance
Chart. In 2009, she received Mojo Magazine’s Lifetime Achievement Award, and
she assembled a new PLASTIC ONO BAND for her latest album, Between My Head And
The Sky, co-produced with son Sean Lennon, on his Chimera Music label. From
gallery to stage to social media platforms, Yoko Ono brings a message of peace
to the world. Ms. Ono’s ongoing projects are detailed at http://imaginepeace.com.


Ms. Ono will also be a special guest performer at a Chimera
Music night, Saturday, March 19 at The Elysium.
