Now we’re talking. With South by Southwest just a few weeks out the big names are starting to roll in. Spotify just released the lineup for their popular Spotify House party and it’s a doozy. Top billed artists include neo-R&B crooner Miguel, Scottish electropop trio Chvrches, new-country sweetheart Kacey Musgraves and rap upstart Vince Staples.

Also included in the stacked lineup are the Kills, soul dynamo Charles Bradley and jazz outfit (and occasional Ghostface Killah collaborators) Badbadnotgood. Comedian Hannibal Burress will also make special appearances at the event.

As we learned from the list of SXSW week event permits recently released by the city, this year the Spotify House will be at the space occupied by shuttered Mexican spot Nuevo Leon.

In a positive move, after the fest, Spotify will not pack up and ship out the house entirely. Instead many of the materials and furniture from the house will be repurposed to build a recording studio for East Austin’s Kealing Middle School.

“In partnership with DPR Construction, MINDPOP, Acoustic Spaces, and Rebuilding Together Austin, this donation will help expand the music production class where children from a wide range of backgrounds come together to create, explore and work together,” Spotify reps said today.
