Superorganism, YFN Lucci, Low, Bad Gyal, and 500+ More Showcasing Artists Announced for SXSW 2018

New year, new music! And on that topic, today we announced 500+ Showcasing Artists who will be performing at the SXSW Music Festival, March 12–18, 2018. Every one of you must have had your New Year’s Day black-eyed peas because our latest list features amazing talent from 43 countries around the world.

First off, SXSW is pleased to announce the North American debut of composer Max Richter’s 8-hour masterpiece SLEEP. Recently added Showcasing Artists also include Alamo Record’s producer/rapper Smokepurpp, veteran mellow-rockers Low, Rough Trade signees Goat Girl, up-and-coming Chicano chillwave act Cuco, Australian indie-pop singer Amy Shark, breakout Southern rock band Stop Light Observations, Latin Grammy nominated electronic pop group Centavrvs, and many more.

The Music Festival team are not the only ones who have been busy lately at SXSW HQ lately – we’ve also announced great additions to the Music Tracks at the SXSW Conference. Accomplished music industry executive and Head of Music at YouTube and Google Lyor Cohen will deliver a SXSW Music Keynote, iconic bassist/songwriter Kim Deal will have a conversation with veteran producer/musician Steve Albini, and that just barely scratches the surface! Be sure to take a look at the SXSW Conference Schedule to see everything that’s been announced so far.
