An additional 500 bands have been announced in Round Three as showcasing artists for the South by Southwest (SXSW) Music Festival to be held in Austin, Texas from March 17-22, 2015. In recent years, over 2000 bands have performed each year, so this is just a partial list, and more will be announced periodically as more register.
See the following announcement which lists all these additional showcasing artist bands. There is also a link for each one with more details, including their music and other band information.
See my music posts for Asleep at the Wheel, Bleachers, Amanda Shires, and Wild Child, who are included in these additional artists. With the 243 bands announced for Round Two, as well as the initial 170 bands in Round One, that makes a total of 913 bands so far. For a full list of currently announced artists, see the SXSW Schedule.
