The 12th annual show, dubbed "MTV Woodies/10 for 16," will spotlight 10 rising artists, during the show, which takes place during SXSW in Austin, Texas.

"This is all about shedding light on the music of this generation, the love and bond between different artists," Rocky recently told the AP. "We want to shed light at the Woodies on those who influences a lot of people and those who don’t get credit."'
