Taylor Swift and Childish Gambino were among the winners on Friday night at the mtvU Woodie Awards, where a little flash flood watch didn't scare South by Southwest party-goers.
As the rain poured down in Austin, Texas, fans packed the Woodies venue to see live performances by Fall Out Boy, Big Sean, Years & Years and James Bay, while acts including Misterwives, Rae Sremmurd, Action Bronson, Ty Dolla $ign, Raury, and Clean Bandit with Jess Glynne entertained during the pre-show, day-long Woodies Festival.
Jack Antonoff played host at the event, which saw Porter Robinson take home the coveted Woodie of the Year award. The producer and EDM star beat out Sam Smith, Charli XCX, J. Cole and FKA Twigs for the honor.
Swift won the Cover Woodie award for her rendition of Vance Joy's "Riptide," while Gambino was honored for finding new ways to reach audiences with the Next Level Performance Woodie. Swift's pal Ed Sheeran also nabbed an award on Friday night for his collaboration with Hoodie Allen.
