Courtney Barnett, Bomba Estereo, Que coming to SXSW 2015
Yes, we’re in the midst of fall music festival season, but let’s talk about spring for a minute. The South by Southwest Music Festival is scheduled for March 17-22, 2015 and the first names for its 2015 roster just dropped via “A Series of Sneaks” on the fest’s online radio station SXSWfm today.
Australian singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett who is also scheduled to play Fun Fun Fun Fest next month topped the list “leaked” by the fest today. Soulful Irish artist Hozier, who cancelled his ACL Fest 2014 appearances due to illness then showed up on Saturday Night Live will also be at the fest. Berlin-based singer Dena will make her third appearance at the fest and up-and-coming rapper Atlanta rapper Que will also be in town.
Excellent Colombian electro tropical act Bomba Estereo will be back for the fest and fellow Colombians El Freaky will also make the trip north to bring South American heat to the fest. Canada’s Alvvays is coming and so are Danish rockers Mew and Rangleklods.
Local artist Kydd Jones announced his acceptance on social media earlier this week.
