MTV aired the 11th annual awards live on Friday, March 20, 2015 at 9-10pm ET (live)/PT (tape) from the 2015 SXSW Music Festival in Austin, Texas, with host Jack Antonoff of Bleachers. Featured performers include James Bay, Fall Out Boy, Big Sean and Years & Years. Fall Out Boy was also honored for their years of music superstardom and intense loyalty to their fans with the first-ever induction to the "Hall Of Wood," while Zoe Kravitz, Tove Lo, The Fat Jew, and Marina & The Diamonds, Ellar Coltrane, A$AP Rocky, MisterWives, Rae Sremmurd and Hoodie Allen will be on hand to present awards throughout the night. Hosted by A$AP Rocky, the MTV Woodies/10 for 16 highlights the 10 new artists primed to have an amazing year in 2016. Airing live on Wednesday, March 16, 2016 at 9pm ET (live)/PT (tape) from the South By Southwest Music Festival (SXSW) in Austin, Texas, the event spotlighted an eclectic roster of artists including Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals, A$AP Ferg, BORNS, The Chainsmokers, CHVRCHES, Jack Garratt, Jidenna, Kehlani, Lukas Graham and Travis Scott. In the spirit of music discovery that drives SXSW, MTV Woodies/10 for 16 has a newly reimagined format this year -- and a new name -- with more music, less awards, and a focus on these select emerging artists, their fans, and the established artists who support them.
The 2017 edition of the MTV WOODIES premiered live on Thursday, March 16, 2017 at 11pm ET (live)/PT (tape) from Austin, TX, during South by Southwest Music Festival. Host Rick Ross, who also performs, welcomes these musicians to the stage: Desiigner, D.R.A.M., Lil Yachty, Jidenna, Khalid and Starley. They're joined by presenters The Chainsmokers, A$AP Ferg, Young M.A and Bibi Bourelly. Prior to the one-hour live award telecast, Terrence J hosts MTV's emerging artist Woodies music festival, beginning at 8pm ET, livestreamed on, with performances by D.R.A.M., Lil Yachty, Young M.A, Bibi Bourelly, MUNA and PVRIS.
