Julian Casablancas at SXSW 2014

It’s spring time - flowers are blooming, love is in the air, and we’re gearing up for music festival season!

We’re very proud of our artist alumni who take their talents across the globe after helping us kick off the festival season at our event every March. Those of you heading out to the California desert this weekend (and/or next weekend) for Coachella will have the chance to see plenty of SXSW 2014 showcasing artists.

As always, our friends who run Coachella have put together a stellar lineup! Grulke Prize-winning Future Islands is set to perform both weekends, and Julian Casablancas of the Strokes was just added to the lineup yesterday!

See the full list of SXSW 2014 bands performing at Coachella below. And tune in to SXSWfm tomorrow for a very special Coachella edition of The Backbeat, our indie rock specialty show.
