SXSW Reveals Full Artist List of More Than 2,000 Performers
This year’s South By Southwest is just around the corner, and now, the annual music festival and conference has unveiled its full list of more than 2,000 artists.
The massive onslaught of musicians will take over Austin next week from Tuesday, March 15, to Sunday, March 20. For its 30th year, SXSW has curated an expansive roster that includes Ryan Adams (billed with the Shining), the Avett Brothers, Bleachers, Bloc Party, Blood Orange, Car Seat Headrest, Chairlift, Charli XCX (with SOPHIE), Coheed and Cambria, the Dandy Warhols, Earl Sweatshirt, Eleanor Friedberger, Girls Names, Jamie xx, Lower Dens and Miike Snow. It no doubt goes without saying, but that’s only a fraction of the artists who will play shows across Austin next week. You can wade through the complete lineup right here.
Of course, live music won’t be the only thing going on over the course of those six days. The conference portion of the festival also promises a ton of big names lined up for exciting sessions. That includes Talib Kweli, NOFX, John Doe of X, Mike Watt of Minutemen, Butch Vig and, of course, First Lady Michelle Obama. (President Obama will be on-hand for a keynote speech tomorrow during the Interactive portion of the festival.) Check out all of the upcoming panels and discussions at this location.
However, tickets will be distributed to select SXSW badge holders on a first-come, fist-served basis.
