Showtime is bringing a “Twin Peaks” immersive experience to this years’ SXSW Film Festival, the network announced Thursday.

On March 16 and March 17, fans can attend The Showtime House at Clive Bar on Rainey Street in Austin, Texas to dive into the world of the cult hit show. Series star Kyle MacLachlan will make a special appearance on March 16.

Showtime will also host a special two-day musical lineup with afternoon and evening sessions, featuring music inspired by the show. Performers will include Neko Case, Real Estate, M. Ward, Agnes Obel, Holly Macve, Julie Byrne, Alex Cameron, Aldous Harding, Alexandra Savior, Cameron Avery and Annie Hart (of Au Revoir Simone), Tim Darcy, L.A. Salami and Let’s Eat Grandma.

The new limited event series will debut with a two-part premiere on May 21. Immediately following the premiere, Showtime subscribers will have access to the third and fourth parts, exclusively across the Showtime streaming service. In its second week, the show will air the third and fourth parts back-to-back, followed by single parts in subsequent weeks.

Directed entirely by David Lynch, the new 18-part limited event series picks up 25 years after the inhabitants of a quaint northwestern town were stunned when their homecoming queen Laura Palmer was shockingly murdered. It is written and executive produced by series creators David Lynch and Mark Frost, and is executive produced by Sabrina S. Sutherland.
