SXSW Adds More Than 500 New Artists to Lineup: Maggie Rogers, Big Thief, Many More

This morning, annual music and media conference and Austin tourism dream/nightmare South by Southwest has announced an addition of more than 500 artists performing at the festival. This adds to an already-expansive list.

The festival is approaching fast, and with CMJ in New York appearing to have bitten the dust, SXSW is now the only big-name music conference in the country, and may wield even more influence than it has … which is saying something.

As usual, the list of new bands includes a couple of more established or buzzed-about names like the The Districts, Lizzo, Maggie Rogers, Big Thief, Parker Millsap, Open Mike Eagle, Caroline Rose, Pill and Sad13, along with a whole bunch of smaller less-known bands and musicians.

It’s also always worth looking through the list to find the funnier band names on there. For instance: menwhopause, Guantanamo Baywatch and PIZZA TIME.

SXSW 2017 takes place Friday, March 10 to Sunday, March 19. You can see the massive full list of new artists below, along with a video of The Districts performing “Fat Kiddo” at the Paste Studio last year, and find previously announced SXSW acts here, here and here.
