Industry shindig turned spring break destination SXSW has grown almost unfathomably large over the years, to the point where even one of their performer announcements has far more artists than the biggest traditional music festivals. The second round of announcements for its 2015 installment has more names than a lot of people’s iTunes collections. Highlights include postpunk icons Gang of Four, shoegaze trailblazers Swervedriver, rising Atlanta rapper Father, R&B crooner BJ the Chicago Kid, dancehall superstar Sean Paul, stoner-fuzz guru King Tuff, D.C. cult rapper Yung Gleesh, and EW favorites BØRNS and Fielded.

Keep in mind that the list after the jump only constitutes a portion of the artists who’ve been announced for the official festival. More announcements are sure to come, and there will be a baffling number of acts playing the official festival that aren’t big enough yet to make the lists, as well as even more that will be playing unofficial shows around Austin while SXSW is going on. A complete list so far (and info for how to attend) is here.
