MTV‘s 24-hour college-focused network, mtvU, has announced that Iggy Azalea will join a packed performance lineup that includes a bevy of rising up and comers at the 2014 mtvU Woodie Awards. This year’s Woodie Awards ceremony will take place at SXSW in Austin, Texas, where the Australian rap star will rock the stage along with Childish Gambino and others.

Azalea, who is up for a “Best Video Woodie” this year, will be performing her latest single “Fancy” alongside Charli XCX on Thursday, March 13. The track will appear on Azalea’s proper debut album, The New Classic, which drops next month. The Island Def Jam artist has been prepping her first LP for quite some time, but after some label snafus the record will finally see daylight.

Azalea, “Did it My Way Woodie” award nominee Childish Gambino and “Breaking Woodie” nominees The 1975 are all slated to perform at the actual Woodie Awards ceremony.

Ahead of the Woodie Awards, the outdoors Woodie Awards Festival features rising Chicago rapper Vic Mensa and Las Vegas band, Bleachers. Rounding out the list of Woodie Awards Festival performers are Sam Smith, American Authors, London Grammar and Wild Cub.

For those that will be attendance at SXSW Music this year, the 2014 mtvU Woodie Awards kicks off Thursday, March 13 at 3pm CT. Fans can tune on on March 16 8pm ET/PT at mtvU to see the 2014 mtvU Woodie Awards Special.

Iggy Azalea’s The New Classic drops on April 14.
