Justin Bieber Surprise Performace At Banger's

Updated: Monday, March 10 2014, 08:26 AM CDT

South By Southwest is always full of surprises and plenty of impromptu performances. Just after midnight on Sunday, Justin Bieber shocked crowds when he got on stage at the popular Rainey Street Bar, Bangers.

Police sent extra man power to the popular sausage house and beer garden to control any crowds, but KEYE TV learned many people left before Bieber even got on stage.

Austin Police tell us he didn't perform, but tweets from Do512 and Rainey Street Bars show otherwise. There have been a lot of mixed reactions on Bieber's presence at SXSW. Many took to Bangers Facebook page to voice their annoyance, agreeing that letting Bieber play was a sell out by a festival that prides itself in showcasing quality music.

We've since learned Bieber's performance was for Scooter Brauns who was having an artist showcase at Bangers. Brauns discovered Bieber on YouTube back in 2008.
