EMERGENCE presented two groundbreaking showcases at the 2010 South By Southwest music festival in Austin: DXSW (Detroit Hip-Hop showcase) and The Revival: SXSW (Women in Hip-Hop showcase). Curated by Invincible, who performed at both events, these showcases built unity and a stronger spirit of cooperation within the music movements in which Emergence is rooted.

J Dilla's younger brother Illa J hosted the event along with Marv Won, with musical interludes provided by House Shoes and 14KT.
