Skegss, Amyl & The Sniffers and more to represent Australia at SXSW 2019

18 Aussie Acts are Heading to Texas

SXSW has dropped its Showcasing Artists announcement, and it’s packed with some of the greatest emerging talent our country has to offer.

Byron Bay natives Skegss will make the trip to Austin off the back of latest LP My Own Mess, while Melbourne punk outfit Amyl & The Sniffers are also set to bask in a well-deserved international spotlight at SXSW 2019.



Elsewhere on the comprehensive list of 240 Showcasing Artists, Australia is proudly represented by NOIRE, WAAX, Tia Gostelow, The Gooch Palms, WAFIA and more.


The Aussie presence at last year’s SXSW made headlines around the world, with sets from the likes of Gang of Youths, Didirri, The Teskey Brothers, Alice Ivy and Mallrat earning high praise from music critics – and it looks like this year’s lineup will follow suit.
