So, South By Southwest has announced a load of new artists playing its festival in 2013, and as usual it’s a list far too long to publish here. You can see a selection below though, and feel free to check out the lot over at this link.
Here in the UK, the Focus Wales festival and conference has announced its first artists, who include Charlotte Church, who will be showcasing some of her new, more rocky material, including that on her recently released EP ‘One’. The three-pronged Slam Dunk festival is also back to take bands such as All Time Low, Senses Fail and Streetlight Manifesto around Leeds, Hertfordshie and Wolverhampton.
Then, further afield, Stop Making Sense in Croatia has made a couple of announcements too.
