Dave Grohl will be delivering the keynote speech at the 2013 South By Southwest Music Conference in Austin, Texas.
The Foo Fighters frontman has been keeping busy despite taking a break from the band. In addition to SXSW, he is working on his Sound City documentary and new Queens of the Stone Age material with Josh Homme. Both projects are expected next year.
Grohl announced earlier this fall that his Grammy-winning Foo Fighters had no immediate plans to record or tour and that his immediate focus was Sound City, his documentary about the famed Los Angeles studio.
