Meet the 2024 SXSW Music Festival's First Wave of Showcasing Artists

Hinds, waterbaby, Dry Cleaning, and More to Take the Stage

It’s that time again – the SXSW season is revving up and we’re excited to unveil the first round of Showcasing Artists set to ignite the stages at the 2024 SXSW Music Festival, taking place from March 11-16.

Today’s announcement offers a tantalizing glimpse into what’s in store for the 2024 event, with almost 150 artists from around the globe. Our lineup spans from emerging talents to seasoned veterans and there are still over one thousand more yet to be revealed. Let's dive in!

4AD’s genre-hopping maximalist NYC punks cumgirl8 and UK post-punks Dry Cleaning join us along with London-based, Austrian-Brazilian grunge-pop singer Viji.

Stockholm-based waterbaby made waves with her Sub-Pop bedroom pop debut EP, “Foam,” and Spain’s indie garage darlings Hinds return to showcase their highly anticipated fourth album.

Texan group Giovannie & The Hired Guns are redefining rock-and-roll and country music with their irresistible gritty sound that transcends genres and cultures. Plus, prepare to be mesmerized once again by Colombian psychedelic funk trio BALTHVS.

A few of this year’s Showcase Presenters include: Adult Decisions, All The Vibes, Breakout West, Everything R&B, Island Wave, Italians Do It Better, Don Giovanni, Jazz Re:Freshed, The Line of Best Fit, The Loyalty Firm, M for Montreal, Mint Talent Group, Pop Montreal, Spanish Wave, Taiwan Beats, and Wide Days Scotland.
