SXSW gets ready for Day Three

Stay tuned for The Good, The Bad & The Queen's Austin debut

Day Two of South By Southwest ended with a bang after The Horrors closed the night with a typically riotous set, while The Gossip’s strip antics had the whole Austin festival talking.

Day Three promises more of the same, with The Good, The Bad & The Queen leading the pack of must-see performances.

Kicking off the day are Public Enemy, before Amy Winehouse and hotly-tipped newcomers The Pigeon Detectives take to the stage.

Be sure to catch a late night performance from dance duo Simian Mobile Disco as they round off proceedings in the early hours.
