South By Southwest (SXSW, South By) is a set of Film, Interactive Media and Music Festivals that take over the city of Austin Texas for 10 days. The Film and Interactive Media portions have already begun this past Friday, and the Music portion will begin on March 15th, running till the conclusion of the festival on the 20th. Check out the official SXSW website for all of the details!
The term ‘honorable mention’ is not really the correct terminology since some of these acts are practically legends! SXSW has typically been known for showcasing the buzz bands ready to blow up, but you always get a nice lineup of well established artists sprinkled in. Here is a list of artists that need no introduction but they are most certainly worth mentioning!
COHEED AND CAMBRIA / GHOSTFACE KILLAH / MIIKE SNOW / MISTERWIVES / NAS / NOFX / PUSHA T / RICHIE HAWTIN / THE ROOTS / SANTIGOLD / STEVE AOKI / WOLFMOTHER
