The pop singer will deliver the keynote address for SXSW next week (March 14). The speaking event, led by John Norris of Fuse, will be held at 11 a.m, at the Grand Ballroom of the Hilton Austin - Downtown.

The address will be given to Music and Platinum registrants at the festival, the music portion of which is held March 11-16 in Austin, Texas.

It'll follow Gaga's performance at Stubb's on its Doritos #BoldStage the previous night (March 13) benefiting the singer's Born This Way foundation.

The singer, whose "ARTPOP" hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 last year, was reportedly denied a permit to perform at the Doritos stage's original venue, spawning the Stubb's performance.

Dave Grohl presented the festival's keynote address in 2013.
