It’s that time of year again, when South by Southwest rumors and speculation slowly build from sporadic Austin music scene white noise to a deafening, free alcohol-soaked holler. But today we have actual, legitimate SXSW news. The festival released its biggest band drop yet with 560 new acts confirmed for the festival.

The acts run the gamut from living legends like octogenarian Loretta Lynn, the “Coal Miner’s Daughter” turned beloved country grandma  and septuagenarian singer-songwriter Judy Collins to exciting young voices like folk rock outfit Thao and the Get Down Stay Down and indie rockers Waxahatchee. Nineties riot rockers L7, who destroyed a Fun Fun Fun Fest set a couple months back, will be back in town to rage with the spring festers. British goth-rock band the Cult will play, and singer Kele​ Okereke​ and guitarist Russell Lissack bring British indie rock band Bloc Party out of hiatus with a new rhythm section.

Deeper in the lineup we find a couple Odd Future alums, Domo Genesis and Hodgy Beats, rapidly rising rappers Kevin Gates and Mick Jenkins and two top-notch British emcees Lady Leshurr and Little Simz. Memphis rapper Snootie Wild will also be in town for the fest.

Indie pop artist Tor Miller, Minneapolis synth-rockers Poliça, Portland psych rockers the Dandy Warhols and Syracuse outfit Ra Ra Riot are also heading to Austin in March. Country artist Robbie Fulks and country rockers Supersuckers bring the twang and “Mushroom Jazz” DJ Mark Farina brings the sublime soulful soundscapes.

This list builds on the festival’s tradition of fantastic international offerings with Bogotá, Colombia’s electro collective El Freaky, Japanese rock band Atomic StoogesHanba! – The Rebellious Street Band from Poland and afro-trap pioneer Dex Kwasi from Ghana among many others.

Rounding out the list is a fine representation of Austin’s top talent including rapper Kydd, Latin folk/pop artist Gina Chavez, teen pop duo Charlie Belle, ukulele slingers Wild Child, trip hop outfit the Digital Wild and synth-soul trio Keeper. Indie rockers White Denim, who will be pushing a new album “Stiff” that drops on March 25, right after the fest, will also perform as will Bayonne, the alter identity of electro-wizard Roger Sellers, who also has a new album due out in late March.

On Thursday, Jan. 28, the final batch of discounted wristbands to this year’s festival will go on sale for $189 (including tax). All advance sales will be online to locals only at You must have an Austin area zip code to purchase a wristband.
