Since our Festival Outlook is working overtime these days, it’s only appropriate that those kind folks at South by Southwest have decided to make their own lineup announcement and tire our wrists in the process (linking is a bitch!). Today, the music portion of the Austin based extravaganza, set to run from March 17-21, has shelled out over 200 acts set to appear on next year’s bill. Highlights include Frightened Rabbit, Japandroids, Deer Tick, Arms, The Crystal Method, Robyn Hitchcock, Warpaint, and VV Brown. Oh, and for some reason We Are Scientists are booked as well.

A complete list of announced acts can be found by clicking here. If you’re looking for something a bit easier on the eyes, we chose our “acts of note” and posted ’em over on the Festival Outlook. Then again, with over 1,000 more names yet-to-be-named, by the time it’s all said and done, nothing will be easy on the eyes.

Registration for South by Southwest is currently ongoing, but it will, as always, cost you a pretty penny. That said, based on last year’s results, it’s totally worth it.
