This year’s summer festival season is still fresh in our minds, but organizers are already prepping for 2015! Today, the promoters behind South by Southwest have revealed the initial lineup for the music portion of their showcases. The performers on the roster so far aren’t as well known, but the biggest act out of them all is Jessie Ware.

The soulful chanteuse will make an appearance on the Texas stage next year! She is currently promoting her sophomore LP, Tough Love (released on October 21). Ware also plans to tour the UK and Europe next year.

South by Southwest (or SXSW for short) will take place from March 13-22nd in Austin, TX. The music showcases are set from March 17 through the 22nd. Badges to attend the festival are now on sale here. View the initial lineup in its entirety below, and keep your eyes out as we post additional performers throughout the upcoming months.
