30 Artists To Watch At SXSW 2016

Stormzy

The 2016 edition of Austin’s South By Southwest is set to pop off on March 15th and given its sheer size, this year’s lineup is pretty balls to the wall. The festival’s music segment is being headlined by the likes of Blink-182, Deftones, Chvrches, Baauer, Vince Staples, and Charli XCX, but it’s also pushing an extensive mix of genres — including grime, shoegaze, indie pop, and DIY alternative. In other words, there’s a lot to love so we’ve put together an A to Z preview of new(er), must-see artists that are headed to Texas.
