Announcing 200+ Showcasing Artists for the 2018 SXSW Music Festival

And we’re back! SXSW 2018 is five months away, and today’s announcement reveals the first wave of over 200 Showcasing Artists who will be performing at the SXSW Music Festival, March 12–18, 2018. Discovery is the standard at SXSW, and with acts from 32 countries set to perform in an array of musical styles you can expect to find artists and genres that you don’t even know you love yet.

Showcasing Artists include 88Rising artists Higher Brothers from Chengdu, China and Indonesian rapper Rich Chigga, new Matador Records signee Snail Mail, and recent additions to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation, Jay Park and Farina. Moses Boyd returns with the jazz/grime/electronic-infused Moses Boyd – Solo X one-man performance, while Albert Hammond Jr-produced Japanese indie-rockers DYGL, UK and New Zealand singer/songwriters Lucy Rose and Marlon Williams, and iconic UK indie pop legends The Wedding Present also join the 2018 lineup. View the full list of Showcasing Artists below.

Digging into a list of this magnitude is always a treat, but can also be time-consuming. Allow us to lend you a helping hand in the process of discovery:

Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter Keith Urban will speak at the conference as part of Music Culture & Stories, and Spotify’s Chief Content Officer Stefan Blom will have a conversation with Josh Constine, the Editor-At-Large for TechCrunch, in Sync, Stream & License.
