Band applications to perform at the massive South By Southwest conference in the US have closed, and with that comes the announcement of who made the cut. 16 Aussie bands will be making the pilgrimage, as well as 3 from NZ.

Potentially the most influential and important music industry conference in the world, SXSW takes place in Austin, Texas, which come April becomes Mecca for all those musically inclined.
