Scottish Bands Announced for SXSW 2011
by Pete Reid
SXSW has just released, earlier than ever, the first list of acts who have been invited to perform in Austin at South by Southwest 2011. Among the first 100 or so named are three Scottish acts: Jon Fratelli, Steve Mason and Dam Mantle. We’ll keep you updated here whenever more are announced.
As you can see from our frequently updated list last year, this information is subject to change and we know that there will be many more acts announced over the next few weeks and months. The music festival will take place in Austin from March 16th to March 20th 2011 and once again Dear Scotland will be there with all the latest on the Scottish performances and much more.
The full list can be found at sxsw.com:
