Klaxons, Alt-J and Haim are amongst the first wave of acts to be announced for next year's South by Southwest music festival in Austin, Texas.

Klaxons recently played their first live show of 2012 at France's We Love Green festival in September. The band, who are currently finishing up work on their third album, debuted a number of new songs at the gig, including 'Invisible Forces' and 'Rhythm Of Life'.

Los Angeles sister trio Haim appeared at SXSW earlier this year, but this will be Mercury Music Prize winners Alt-J's first time at the industry and fan event.

SXSW will take place from March 12-17, 2013, and will also see showcase sets from the likes of Toddla T, Charlotte Church, John Cooper Clarke, Mac DeMarco, Gallows, Islet, Thurston Moore, The Staves, Marnie Stern, Swim Deep, The Blackout, Brendan Benson and The Zombies.
