South By Southwest Announces Second Wave of Showcasing Artists

It’s been a month since South by Southwest shared the first wave of showcasing artists set to appear at the 35th annual music festival. Tuesday, over 100 more acts have been announced for the virtual event, set for March 16-20.

With the festival’s move to an online space, artists from all over the world are taking advantage of this unique opportunity to perform with more than just a stage behind them. A press release shares that “many have been inspired to choose some unusual, as well as iconic, settings for their showcases,” including Abbey Road Studios in London, Hotel Vegas in Austin, an indoor shrimp fishing spot in Taiwan and a cable car in Norway.

Emerging acts from the second wave of announcements include Australian punk rockers The Chats, Chubby and the Gang, Texan psychedelic band Holy Wave, Irish folk artist Ailbhe Reddy, Greyhounds, Taiwanese indie trio The Chairs and many, many more.

Besides musical performances, passholders will also be able to attend networking meet-ups, mentor sessions, film festival screenings and other virtual events. Keynotes and other speakers previously announced to present include Stacey Abrams, Willie Nelson, Andrew Bird, Amber Ruffin, Wyclef Jean and Demi Lovato.

SXSW will be accessible in a number of different formats, as detailed in a press release:

Experience SXSW Online Music Festival with streaming available via web, mobile, and the SXSW Online Connected TV app (Apple TV, Fire TV, Roku, Samsung TV Plus, and Android TV). Select Music Festival Showcases, Conference Sessions and Special Event programming will be available at SXSW Online XR on VRChat. Virtual Cinema programming will be available on the VRrOOm store.
