The world’s most renowned music industry showcase SXSW, based in Austin Texas today announced the first wave of acts to be showcased at its 2020 event.

There are some significant Irish candidates. The Murder Capital have gotten the green light, as have Dundalk’s Just Mustard, Lilla Vargen and Pulse College’s Eoin Smith.

Smith is the darkhorse among that list. He is an avant-garde electronic artist, who spent formative years making records in a pressing plant and now works in Dublin’s Pulse College.

In terms of international candidates, there are some wonderful additions. Manchester’s The Orielles are a superb pick, same with Amsterdam’s Mauskovic Dance Band – who have released some superb material this year.

For prospective bands, the final date to apply to play is October 25th. Head on over here if you want to do so.
