SXSW Announces Second Wave of 2013 Artists

Update: SXSW recently announced the second wave of bands that will be making their way to Austin for the 27th edition of the festival next year. Over 800 artists have now been confirmed. Take a look below.

Update: It was announced today that Dave Grohl will be the keynote speaker for the 2013 SXSW festival. The former Nirvana drummer and Foo Fighters frontman will take the stage to deliver his keynote on March, 14 at the Austin Convention Center.

Yes, it’s barely November, but that doesn’t mean it’s too early to start thinking about SXSW. The long-running Austin-based festival has just announced the first wave of artists that will be performing at its 27th edition. The initial list includes over 200 artists from around the world, with more to be announced in the coming months. If you still wish to apply, the festival is accepting applications until Nov. 9

The music portion of SXSW 2013 will take place from Tuesday, March 12 to Sunday, March 17 at venues across Austin. For more information, visit the festival website here. The complete list of first wave acts is listed in alphabetical order below.
