Beck will be among the keynote speakers at this year’s South by Southwest festival.

The “Loser” artist’s talk will take place on March 18, and will include a reflection on his long and varied career, which earned him a nomination for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this year.

“2022 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nominee and eight-time Grammy-winner Beck has traveled light years from his emergence as a reluctant generational spokesperson when ‘Loser’ exploded into a ubiquitous 1994 smash,” reads a description for the event. “Beck’s singular vision has since seen him utilize all manners and eras of music, blazing a path into the future while foraging through the past.”

SXSW 2022 takes place March 11-20 in Austin, Texas. Other keynote speakers include musician Lizzo, author Neal Stephenson, and director Celine Tricart.
