The South by Southwest Music Festival has added hundreds of more performers for 2014. The six-day conference takes over downtown Austin in March.
The amount of musical talent found in Texas is as vast and diverse as the people and landscape that make up the state. Legends such as Buddy Holly, Janis Joplin, Willie Nelson, Stevie Ray Vaughn and Van Cliburn are just a handful of famous musicians who have called Texas their home. DFW’s music scene showcases a range of musical styles — from Pan-Atlantic to distortion pop — including these 2012 breakout acts that are on their way to the top.
