Additions to the 2020 Music Festival include Savages frontwoman Jehnny Beth; Stone’s Throw pop-experimentalist Sudan Archives; NYC’s genre-skirting Gen Z LAUNDRY DAY; Ghostly International electronic producer Telefon Tel Aviv; R&B up-and-coming gems Erika de Casier from Copenhagen and Georgia’s Baby Rose; Helsinki-based punk-tinged pop songwriting powerhouse ALMA; Icelandic solo-synth artist Sólveig Matthildur (of Kælan Mikla); and SXSW rap veteran Trae Tha Truth to name a few.

Earlier this week we also announced two showcases for the British Music Embassy presented by BBC Introducing and BBC Radio 6 Music. Check out the full lineups with the hottest music coming out of the UK.


While the SXSW Music Festival has been booking artists, the SXSW conference made a major announcement Tuesday jam-packed with Keynotes, featured speakers, and more.

A few highlights from the announcement include Keynotes from Oscar, Golden Globe, and Grammy Award-winning composers Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross of Nine Inch Nails with Watchmen producer Damon Lindelof; multiple Grammy-award winning musician, actress, producer, director, and writer St. Vincent a/k/a Annie Clark in conversation with musician, actress, writer, and director Carrie Brownstein; K-Pop pioneer and SM Entertainment founder Soo-Man Lee, and eight-time Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter, producer, activist, and actress Janelle Monáe as well as featured speakers Ozzy Osbourne and AI-embracing 4AD electronic composer/producer Holly Herndon to name a few.
