The SXSW Music Festival brings together 2,000+ musical artists to perform for fans, creatives, and industry pros in Austin, TX each March. We recently announced the first wave of 240 SXSW Showcasing Artists for 2019 and will continue to add to the lineup in the weeks and months to come. To help you find music that resonates with you and discover new artists in advance of the festival, dive into 2019 SXSW Music Videos so that you don’t miss a beat come March.
This YouTube playlist will continue to grow as each new artist announcement is published, and currently includes 146 videos from Showcasing Artists. Some highlights include San Marcos rap collective PNTHN, French pop duo Cats On Trees, dreamy indie rockers Slow Pulp, a tripped out video from Austin-based indie group Palo Duro, Swedish punks Viagra Boys with their athletic anthem ”Sports”, atmospheric synth pop act Blood Cultures, and much more.
In addition to music video playlists, SXSW curates multiple lists using music from Showcasing Artists on Spotify and Apple Music so that you can discover new bands you’ll love. Give those a listen and stream the SXSWfm show released to accompany the first announcement for the 2019 SXSW Music Festival.
