The first 2017 SXSW list of artists has now been released. The list features over 150 musicians and groups who are blowing up and on the rise.

SXSW Music Festival has scheduled these artists to perform March 13-19, 2017. All of the artists come from 26 different countries and will bring their unique sounds to Austin.



One thing that SXSW values is the discovery of underground artists and “under-the-radar acts,” as mentioned on their site. If you are unfamiliar with the artists on the list, just click on their name and you will be routed directly to their hottest music!
