SXSW organizers released the third round of SXSW 2014 artists earlier today, and with it, another 40 Canadian acts were added to the festival—bringing the total count of Canadians announced so far to a lofty 72! We’re still looking to hit that magic 119 number from last year, though, so keep your fingers crossed for more Canuck additions in the fourth round of announcements!
Among the most anticipated of the latest round of acts are indie rock quintet Dinosaur Bones, hip-hop beat junkies Grand Analog, Toronto duo July Talk, distortion-heavy rockers PUP, perennial SXSW favorites Said The Whale, and Ontarian rapper Shad.
We’ll keep you up to date as more bands are announced. In the meantime, check out our Events page for the full list of Canucks so far, and make sure to tune in to This Great White North—Fridays at 4:30 PM Central on KOOP 91.7 FM and at KOOP.org—for the latest updates.
