The 2017 SXSW Music Festival is coming up fast and we’re bringing a lot of musical talent with us. So, whether you’re looking to educate yourself before March 13 or you’re just in need of some new sounds, here are some ways to discover our Showcasing Artists.
The first step to finding your next favorite band is to check out SXSWfm, where you can immerse yourself in an environment curated for the ultimate SXSW experience. Tune into our programs that are streaming 24 hours a day and discover another world of every kind of music imaginable.
- Access live programs through our online player

If you’re a Spotify lover and you’ve run out of playlists to browse, then you should peek into SXSW’s official channel. Here you can satisfy your music cravings with our playlists, each one an arrangement of our most recently announced artists.
Additionally, we’ve provided a complete playlist that features all of the 2017 SXSW Showcasing Artists on Spotify.
Another way to discover new Music Festival artists is by downloading the SXSW GO mobile app. As you browse this year’s lineup, listen to the MP3s of several artists. Once you’ve found one that’s right for you, the app allows you to build your schedule via SXSW Social and plan out a SXSW experience unique to your music interests.
If you could use a little extra help determining what kind of music best suits your tastes, we’re highlighting a different artist every weekday until the Music Festival. Here we offer artist descriptions, along with recommendations of other artists that will help you to explore each genre and further develop your own palette.
With all of this in mind, go find your new favorite act and start planning your SXSW experience! Register to attend and lock in your hotel room so you can focus on discovering the artists you’ll see here next week, March 13-19!
