Every year, in the month of March, there’s this little festival down in Austin, Texas, that goes by the name of South by Southwest. Ever heard of it?
In case you haven’t, here’s some quick background: It’s a ten-day conference that incorporates music, film and interactive portions (think techies revealing their latest apps). But for the sake of this article, we’re focusing on the music.
Our genius friends at Spotify have created a super comprehensive list of nearly 2,000 artists who performed during the course of the festival. We’ve taken the liberty of scouring that list and cherry-picking our top favorites (which we think you’ll like too).
The following playlist is a mix of upbeat hits (get used to names like Marina & the Diamonds and Vérité) perfect for ushering in springtime--and driving with the windows down.
