From Stromae and Real Estate to Iceage and QT: A SXSW Set Photo Diary

SXSW, Music

The past week at SXSW has been a wild ride, packed with tacos, jean shorts, and fresh music from around the world. We searched Austin far and wide to find a little something for everyone. Polished pop came courtesy of Marina and the Diamonds, Christine and the Queens, and Stromae; a compellingly unhinged set from rapper Heems showed the spontaneous side of SXSW.

Sunny, crunchy vibes from acts like Cobalt Cranes, and Palma Violets, complimented the Texas weather, and the relentless energy of Kero Kero Bonito, Diarrhea Planet, Spring King, and Iceage erased any concerns about festival fatigue. Emotionally piercing artists Mitski and Years & Years were devastating standouts in the midst of the weeklong battle of the bands, and it would be amiss to not mention the party-starting talents of Skylar Spence and Shamir, whose forthcoming material is now even more anticipated. Below, check out a series of photos from the week and listen to an accompanying Spotify playlist.
