We’re entering 2024 with a hefty announcement for the SXSW Music Festival. The 38th annual event is just around the corner, and today, we're letting you in on the scoop. The third round of Showcasing Artists are ready to break out in the city of Austin from March 11-16. With over 340 artists joining us from all corners of the globe, this year promises to be one for the books.
The 2024 edition of the SXSW Music Festival includes Flyana Boss, the viral dynamic duo bringing live rap reports straight from LA; Bootsy Collins, the legendary funk and R&B maestro, a consummate character, and James Brown’s pupil, is ready to groove with us; and J Noa, the Dominicana rapsmith with clever wordplay and a double-tempo skillset that'll leave you mesmerized.
Swooping in with a triple-SX-whammy are Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney of The Black Keys, a six-time Grammy-winning band. Not only are they Official Showcasing Artists, but they have also recently been added as a Keynote for the SXSW Conference and will make a splash on the SXSW Film & TV screen with the world premiere of This is a Film About The Black Keys.
Additionally, STRFKR is ushering in a new era with their album 'Parallel Realms,' alongside Chih Siou, the enigmatic artist defying genres with a lucid mix of electronic and folk-pop, Belfast's own Kneecap, the trio that merges Irish and English in satirical socially conscious lyrics, and London musician signed to XL Recording, Fabiana Palladino.
