SXSW Festival Adds North Texas Groups To Spring Line-Up

AUSTIN (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — The South by Southwest Music Festival has added hundreds of more performers for 2014, including Gary Numan.

The electronic and industrial music pioneer was the top name on the list released Tuesday.

The six-day conference takes over downtown Austin in March and specializes in showcasing up-and-coming acts and a handful of established talent for thousands of performances. In 2013, more than 25,000 people saw 2,278 acts during the festival.

Performers heading south from Dallas include Dustin Cavazos, Conner Youngblood, and the group Yung Nation. Bands attending the music conference from Fort Worth include Complete and The Unlikely Candidates.

Other acts named to the lineup Tuesday ranged from Scotland’s Cairn String Quartet to South Korea’s Crying Nut. Dana Falconberry is another top Texas act on the bill. White City, a band from Afghanistan, will also be performing.

The festival releases the names of invited bands throughout the year, but the biggest names are announced closer to opening night.
