Update: Damien Rice NOT playing Irish SxSW showcase

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.

    Hi, thanks for the update but I’m a bit confused… You said Damien Rice is not coming but then you said the confirmed performer list included Damien Rice. So, is he coming or not? I’ve checked the showcase lineup on the mobile app. Damien Rice used to be on the list but now I couldn’t find him. If you have any update, please spread the words! I really want to see his performance at SXSW. Thanks!
