The list of official artists keep growing daily, but this list is more about who hasn’t been announced yet, but might play at the fest. By looking at tour schedules and following artist rumors, @ATXConcert brings you the best guesses for fest additions.
Khalid: Khalid is a singer from El Paso most known for his hits “Location” and “Young Dumb & Broke”. He has a nice tour gap between Glasgow and Argentina and might show up from March 8 – 16. He played the Sony: Lost In Music showcase in Los Angeles on December 21. Sony: Lost in Music has plans during the fest.
Logic: With a stop in San Antonio on March 3 for the Botanica Festival and with nothing on his calendar the rest of the month, a SX appearance could be possible.
Snakehips: This British electronic/R&B music duo plays Buku Festival then has open dates on March 12-14.
Incubus: What a blast from the past… if you were born in the 80s or 90s. Their tour schedule has them available from 3/16-3/17. Don’t count them out as they have plans in El Paso on 3/23 and are set to play the In Bloom Festival in Houston on March 24.
Jeezy: The Cold Summer Tour with Jeezy and Tee Grizzley was recently announced with no Austin dates. They are in Texas during SX with an open date on March 18! That last day for the festival is usually too chill, usually just hangover parties, but never say never.
Bonobo: Bonobo is a British musician, producer and DJ based in Los Angeles. Don’t recall him every performing during the March festival, maybe 2018 is his year. He is on the Buku Festival lineup for March 9, in Mexico on March 10, then open from March 11-15.
Isaiah Rashad: As one of the shinning stars of the massively talented Top Dawg Ent record label fronted by Kendrick Lamar, he is on the Buku Festival schedule for March 10, and is completely open the rest of March. He is not on the Championship Tour with the rest of his label so maybe he will make an appearance in Austin.
Broods: Broods is a duo from New Zealand, composed of siblings Georgia Nott on lead vocals and multi-instrumentalist Caleb Nott on production and backing vocals. They have complete open availability and playing the In Bloom Festival on March 25. They haven’t really toured or made new music since early 2016 so we have our fingers crossed.
Explosions in the Sky: EITS are native Texans. If that’s not enough of a reason, they also have the entire festival with nothing scheduled.
Noname: Noname is in my opinion the most talented rapper/poet to come out of 2016. She is currently on a trek across the US with only festivals on her calendar. She plays Buku on 3/9-3/10 with a curious gap in her tour from March 11-18.
Doja Cat: Doja Cat, is an American singer, songwriter, rapper, and record producer.She is set to play the Botanica Festival in San Antonio on March 3 with no other tour dates.
