HONORABLE MENTIONS

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
