South by Southwest 2014 continues to balloon its ever-expanding musical bill for its March dates and this time around a whole slew of emerging Australian acts have been included in the third instalment of the mammoth lineup announcements.

Sydney indie outfit Gang Of Youths are amongst the 24 Aussie acts announced to play at the legendary Austin festival, alongside experimental electronic project The Kite String Tangle and grooving Sydneysiders The Preatures. Also joining the lineup are Brisbane party punks DZ Deathrays, Melbourne’s Miami Horror, electronic trio Seekae and triple j’s Unearthed artist Wave Racer.

These new acts join 16 other already announced compatriots bringing the Australian contingent up to a healthy 40 acts so far. Already confirmed Australian acts include Sydney’s indie kings Boy And Bear, moody Melburnians Oh Mercy, Flume side project What So Not, Touch Sensitive, Melburnian songstress Gossling, dirty rockers The Delta Riggs and Vance Joy.
