The 2019 SXSW Music Festival is just days away, and we’ve announced Showcasing Artists from 64 countries around the world. These acts will take the stage at bars, clubs, concert halls, dives, and parks all over downtown Austin to show the SXSW community the music of their respective homelands. Whether you’re looking for reggae, afropop, cumbia, reggaeton, Norteño, international pop, or experimental music – there’s something for everyone. To help you find the perfect show, we’ve put together a list of showcases focused on music from around the world, but to get the complete picture, we recommend diving into the SXSW Schedule as well. Plenty of great international artists are spread throughout showcase lineups not dedicated to their specific regions or styles.
