With this week’s addition of over 100 acts, we’ve now announced 1300+ Showcasing Artists for the SXSW Music Festival. New artists include former keyboardist of Cherry Glazerr turned indie solo act SASAMI, experimental goth-pop artist Zola Jesus, indie emo pop-punks The Get Up Kids, drummer/DJ/producer Questlove, UK-based arena-rockers The Amazons, country singer and Nashville star Charles Esten, and Japanese salaryman turned Jimmy Page impersonator Mr. Jimmy, the subject of the documentary Mr. Jimmy that is world-premiering at SXSW in the music-focused 24 Beats Per Second screening section.

Also newly announced are Downtown Records singer-songwriter Lola Kirke, Dallas rap collective The Outfit, TX, Philly-based shoegaze group Nothing, hardcore rap-punks Ho99o9, Australian Aboriginal/Filipino soul/pop singer singer Mojo Juju, and Brooklyn-based r&b singer/producer Cautious Clay.

The SXSW Conference also shared big news this week. Among the great list of inclusions across the board, we announced a Keynote Conversation with Adam Horovitz and Michael Diamond of Beastie Boys with Amazon Music’s Nathan Brackett, as well as a Keynote Session with T Bone Burnett, acclaimed songwriter and composer of the soundtracks for True Detective, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, The Big Lebowski, Cold Mountain, and more.

This week we announced great showcase lineups as well, including the 12th annual British Music Embassy, AFS and Holodeck Present Ra: Path of the Sun God Rescored, Damnably Records, and The Spacebomb Revue, which will feature a lineup of Spacebomb artists all backed by the Spacebomb House Band including label co-founder Matthew E. White.
