The lineup additions come after a hefty day of news for SXSW on Monday. Amid fears of coronavirus, both Facebook and Twitter (including CEO Jack Dorsey) pulled out of this year’s event. SXSW officials said Monday afternoon that the conference and festivals are still planned to go on as scheduled, and no Texas health officials have requested cancellation. Organizers said they are monitoring the coronavirus situation and working with government agencies to ensure safety. SXSW has released a statement on its website.


Also on Monday, SXSW Film Festival announced "The Green Knight," an Arthurian tale starring Dev Patel, has been added to its lineup.
