I had the chance to speak with a few people over the past week to get the inside scoop on what Scottish bands will be heading to Austin next month, and it looks like there will be a record 17 bands here for SXSW. The full list is below:

So here is the latest list of Scottish acts who are on the schedule. Even with five weeks to go, this list will probably change.

In alphabetical order:

Admiral Fallow

Bronto Skylift

Dam Mantle

Django Django (added to list Feb 8th)

Edwyn Collins

Erland and the Carnival


Flood of Red (removed from list Feb 8th)

Jon Fratelli (ex Fratellis) (reconfirmed)

Kid Canaveral

King Creosote [not on new SXSW Official List but on SXSW Press Release]


Rachel Sermanni

Steve Mason (ex Beta Band) [not on SXSW Official List but tweeted confirmation] (removed from list Feb 8th)

Twilight Sad

Twin Atlantic

Unicorn Kid

Unkle Bob (removed from list Feb 8th)

Veronica Falls

Withered Hand

Woodenbox with a Fistful of Fivers (removed from list Feb 8th)

Xcerts (removed from list Feb 8th)

It’s a bloody long list now and there is still no country of origin listed so let me know if I’ve missed anyone too.

The official SXSW list is here if you want to trawl through it.

Also if anyone has any questions about attending, either as a fan or a performer, then just let me know.

More next week.
