One of the largest annual music festivals is the SXSW Music Conference in Austin, TX. Held in the middle of March, the event features several thousand bands performing across dozens of real and makeshift venues across Austin. While the event attracts artists from across the world it often draws a large contingent of Los Angeles artists - well known and upcoming - to perform throughout the event.
In 2013 some of the notable Los Angeles artists who performed at SXSW included: Ben Harper (performing with Natalie Maines of Dixie Chicks), Devendra Barnhart, Jesca Hoop, DWNTN, Ozomati, Wardell, Vintage Trouble and the Calabasas, CA based Mowglis. The 2014 SXSW will hit Austin again on March 7th and finish on March 16th. Check out the accompanying photo gallery of Los Angeles based artists performing at SXSW 2013.
