87 Canucks and counting!

SXSW 2016

We’ve done some deep digging to bring you the latest and most up-to-date list of Canadian artists coming to Austin for next month’s South By Southwest music festival and are happy to announce that the tally now stands at 87 artists! The lineup is beginning to take shape, with set times for some shows already announced and the must-visit venues for Canadian shows already apparent.

For more details and the complete lineup, check out our continuously updated SXSW 2016 page.

The fun begins on Tuesday with the BreakOut West Music & Interactive Party and continues Wednesday with that venerable SXSW tradition, the Canadian Blast BBQ at Brush Square Park. Canada House this year will once again be at Friends, and it looks like Planet Québec will also return, though their home base is as yet unknown. Music blog Weird Canada will also be putting on a showcase at the convention center on Friday afternoon.

We’ll continue to bring you the latest Canadian news about SXSW and, as we get closer to the festival, will provide you with daily schedules, calendars, and complete coverage.
