In addition to serving as the Keynote Speaker, Bruce Springsteen will deliver an exclusive performance at this year’s South by Southwest. According to the festival’s website, Springsteen and the E Street Band will play at an undisclosed “intimate” venue on the evening of Thursday, March 15th.

Entrance into the show will be determined by a ticket lottery, which is open to badge and wristband holders only. We’ll let SXSW take it from here:

From Monday, March 12th through Wednesday, March 14th, eligible badge and wristband holders can go to any of the four Connection Centers in the Austin Convention Center to enter the drawing. Badges and wristbands will have their RFID tags scanned to enter each person into a random drawing.

After entry in the drawing ends on March 14th, the individual winners will be sent an email with further instructions at 10am on Thursday, March 15th. Those who are not selected will also be notified by email at this time. Winners will be instructed where to go to obtain their tickets for the show.

Below, check out Springsteen and co.’s entire upcoming tour schedule, and head to Mashable to hear a stream of the title track to his upcoming LP, Wrecking Ball, due March 6th via Columbia.
