SXSW is hands-down one of our favorite places to discover the next breakthrough bands from all over the world. But no matter how much coffee we swill or how far we run across downtown Austin, it’s just not humanly possible to see all 2,000+ bands over the course of six days.
Don’t sweat it — Rdio’s got your back. We threw together the go-to SXSW playlist of all the performers we’re most looking forward to experiencing. The mix is chock full of bands that are already buzzing and hot party headliners — some of which you can get priority access to see by getting on The Rdio List.
