New Order, PJ Sin Suela, Sports Team, Karen Y Los Remedios, Hannah Jadagu, Killer Mike, Venbee, Coco & Clair Clair, THUS LOVE, Peter One— 2023 SXSW Music Festival

With Spring on the horizon, we’re ready to turn the SX energy up with a third round of Showcasing Artists set to perform at the 2023 SXSW Music Festival from March 13-18 in Austin, TX. Feast your eyes and ears on the latest announcement featuring over 300 artists joining us from across the globe, ranging from up-and-comers to veterans.

Today’s 2023 lineup additions include Manchester legends New Order; rapper, activist, and Run The Jewels member Killer Mike; and Captured Tracks’ post-punk saviors THUS LOVE. Immersion (aka Malka Spigel and Colin Newman of Minimal Compact and Wire respectively) will bring their Brighton-based club night Nanocluster for a special one-off collaborative performance with Thor Harris (Swans, Shearwater, Thor & Friends). Plus, Atlanta-bred duo Coco & Clair Clair break genre barriers with their infectious songs and clever lyrics; and Anwan Glover, better known as Big G and leader of the BackYard Band, transports the world of Washington, DC go-go to Austin.

More Showcasing Artists taking the SX stage include the rediscovered 80’s West African country-folk star and recent Verve signing Peter One; Daptone smooth 60’s soul revivalists Thee Sacred Souls; current breakout star of the UK’s new drum & bass revival Venbee; and German krautrock collective Tangerine Dream, to name a few.
