Joining the bill are Best Coast, Will Butler, Brooke Candy, Circa Waves, Clean Bandit, Coves, Elliphant, Emmy The Great, Farao, Fyfe, Gengahr, Girl Band, Girlpool, Juce, Kate Boy, Kelela, Lapalux, Laurel, Marina & The Diamonds, Mozart’s Sister, Mikhael Paskalev, Natalie Prass, San Cisco, Seinabo Sey, Son Lux, Tove Styrke, Kate Tempest, Torres, VÉRITÉ, Ryn Weaver, Laura Welsh, Matthew E White, Alex Winston and many, many more.

The new additions also include two of our five Ones To Watch - Shura and Alex G - and a selection of our newcomers, like Daniel Wilson, Kwabs and Tei Shi.

SXSW 2015 will take place across various venues in Austin, Texas from 13-22 March. There will be a full interactive arts, film, and music lineup.
