A large handful of Australian acts have been added to SXSW’s virtual lineup for 2021.

Artists announced as part of SXSW’s second round include Baker Boy, The Chats, Hachiku, Sycco, The Lazy Eyes and NME cover star Jaguar Jonze.

In September, SXSW organisers announced the festival would be moving online in 2021 following its cancellation in 2020 due to the ongoing pandemic. Electric Fields, Baker Boy and Alex The Astronaut were among the Aussie artists locked in to perform at the 2020 festival.
