It’s a rainy Sunday in Seattle so, naturally, I’m picking the raisins out of my leftover hiking granola and making every excuse not to go outside. Luckily I’ve been able to bide my time pretty effectively because SXSW started on Friday and I had a lot of music to dive into.
South by Southwest is a festival that happens every year in March in Austin, Texas. It plays host to music, film, and interactive components giving festival goers the opportunity to experience hundreds of artists and experts from all over the world. It’s the gateway to festival season and a festival that is (and has been) on my to-do list for ASAP.
For the last two years when SXSW has rolled around I’ve scoped out their artist lineup and found SO many new bands to obsess about (and to stalk tour schedules for when they’ll hit the city I’m in). This year…I may have gone a little crazy with my playlist, but I couldn’t help myself because there were SO many good musicians on the roster.
I present to you my Ultimate SXSW 2015 playlist–I literally scoured every genre and alphabetized breakdown list of who was performing which resulted in nearly 20 hours of music. Oops?
Live vicariously through this playlist with me! (Even if it doesn’t come with food trucks dishing out aromatic BBQ or tacos.)
Speak to you soon!
