Speaking about winning this year's competition, Moats frontman Matt Duncan said he is excited to play in the city dubbed "the home of live music".

"The great thing about Austin is the versatility," says Duncan. "You can hear anything you want almost any time you want. Music comes in many forms, and people shouldn't define themselves by genres, but rather by good music - which comes in all forms. Austin recognises that, and to be a part of it is great."
