Lady Gaga to present keynote address at SXSW

By Chelsea Lewis ,

Lady Gaga will be one of the main performers at the South by Southwest festival but she will also be one of the keynote speakers at the upcoming event in Austin.

Gaga will be speaking next week at the event led by John Norris of Fuse. This will be taking place on March 14 at the Grand Ballroom of the Hilton in Austin, Texas, Billboard reported.

This speaking engagement will be after Gaga takes the stage with her own concert.

The address will be given to Music and Platinum registrants of SXSW. This will be for the music portion of the festival, not the film festival. The music festival of SXSW will be kicking off on March 11 and ending on March 16.

Gaga is set to kick off her fourth world tour in May called artRave: The ARTPOP Ball. The singer, whose ARTPOP hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 last year, was reportedly denied a permit to perform at the Doritos stage's original venue, spawning the Stubb's performance, Complex reports.

This is a busy time for Gaga. She will be playing her own show at SXSW before launching her tour.
