The most exciting shows of the year aren’t going to be in the stadiums, they’re happening in concert halls.
SXSW’s concert series continues to grow every year with new artists and more venues to choose from.
But it seems like there’s one area where the music is getting overlooked.
This year, SXSW announced the list of SXSW 2017 Concerts to Listen to, and the list doesn’t disappoint.
For the third year in a row, the music on the SXSW schedule is underrepresented.
The last time SXSW included music from underrepresented artists was in 2018, and that year saw the festival’s Music from Underrepresented Artists program get shut down.
The 2018 list includes artists from the Underrepresented Arts Program, an initiative that focuses on making music accessible to underrepresented groups.
This is SXSW in 2018.
This list is not the SXSXS list.
It’s the SXSC list.
