In just about 10 days, music fans will descend onto Austin Texas for the annual SXSW music festival. Acts from all across the world will takeover the city and every venue in the city from March 13th-17th. If you’ve ever been to SXSW, then you know that you’re going to be besieged with music. There are going to be so many acts, it’s going to be hard to keep track.
Thats where NPR comes in. They released their annual Austin 100: SXSW mix today. Mashing up everything from rap to EDM, the mix trims down from the thousands of acts that will be performing to give 100 tracks from 100 of the artist they suggest you pay attention to.
