SXSW Music is the place to gorge yourself on up-and-coming artists as well as veteran musicians.
From Austin’s cassette and vinyl releasing label Holodeck Records, enjoy great DIY synth scene musicians such as bass heavy Dylan C. Australia is well represented at SXSW by singer-songwriter Vance Joy, the poppy beach rock of Lime Cordiale and the dreamy pop jams of Owl Eyes.
Join a New Orleans second line as Hot 8 Brass Band performs several shows led by tuba player Bennie Pete. At the other end of the spectrum is K-pop star and fashion designer HyunA.
Seven-piece band Rubblebucket enlist horns, synth, guitars and off-kilter vocals in their quest to create the most raucous live shows around. From indie-pop arrangements to afro-beat stomps, this is a band you need to see. They’ll be at Treefort Music Festival on March 22. Rubblebucket Treefort Music Festival
