Third Wave of 2020 Showcasing Artists Announced

We are back with over 350 new Showcasing Artists from 42 countries joining us for the 2020 SXSW Music Festival. Let’s get to it.

Additions to our genre-bending 2020 lineup include the SXSW return of Soccer Mommy, in advance of her upcoming LP; on-the-rise pop singer Caroline Rose; Montreal-based Fools Gold R&B producer HERO; Aussie singer-songwriter Didirri; Colombian reggae dancehall singer Dragón Rojo; and Ukrainian rapper alyona alyona.

Hailing from the East Coast, New York no-wave legend Lydia Lunch; NYC's soft disco and soul-centered 79.5; and the latest signing to Danger Mouse's 30th Century label Baba Ali. Plus, Brooklyn's The Natural History reunites us on the heels of the 10-year anniversary re-issue of The People That I Meet (which includes "Don't You Ever," best known from Spoon's cover of the song on Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga).

From across the pond, London-based producer and DJ TSHA; UK grime artist Knucks; Scottish singer-songwriter Aaron Smith; and Danish experimental electronic composer Astrid Sonne. Heading Far East, jangly Japanese indie-pop group and new Damnably signing Hazy Sour Cherry join us this spring.

Back stateside, we're joined by Seattle’s country-tinged indie rock act Great Grandpa; Nashville Americana soul singer Nicole Atkins; brash punk outfit Beach Slang; Latin Grammy nominees Making Movies; and AI-embracing Dadabots, to name only a few from today's 350+ artist list.
