UPDATE: It seems as if Damien Rice isn’t now, or was indeed ever, playing this show.
In all likelihood, few of you are heading to Austin for South by Southwest this 6th-17th March, but for those of you that are and fancy catching Irish acts that you could quite easily see at home, the full list of Irish acts performing at the industry showcase has now been confirmed.
They are: Dott, Foy Vance, Heathers, Hozier, Kid Karate, O Emperor, Ram’s Pocket Radio, September Girls, the Strypes, the Young Folk, Unknown, Wonder Villains, Wounds, Cian Nugent and the returning Damien Rice.
Music from Ireland, in partnership with Culture Ireland, are presenting the Irish showcase with Generator Northern Ireland presenting the NI showcase. Stage times and dates will be confirmed over the coming weeks.
Listen to Rice’s 9 below, because it’s been eight years and you may have forgotten what he sounds like.
