CHECK OUT THE LATEST
The musical world is once again gearing up for the sacred yearly pilgrimage to Austin, Texas for the South By South West Music Conference 2013. Organisers have today announced a list of international heavyweights to further add to their previously announced acts.
Sonic Youth‘s Thurston Moore will be performing at the March event as well as Why? and Mac DeMarco. Recent Mercury Award winners alt-J will also be showcasing at SXSW. Akron/Family, Marnie Stern and Haim are also amongst those recently announced. Even with the recently announced list of Australian and NZ artists making the journey, the lineup so far is but a slight scratch of the surface of what the final lineup will be.
Though organisers did extend the application period for bands wanting to perform, today marks the end of that extended period. The hype is well worth it in the end, with an expected 19,000 music industry movers and shakers set to be there and around 3,000 members of the international media. Big things can and do happen at SXSW.
More updates are sure to come through in the near future. In the meantime, take a goosey gander at the full lineup so far.
