The Yawpers perform at the Colorado Music Party at South By Southwest in 2014.

Austin, Texas, has announced new additions to the 2016 lineup. The list includes three Colorado acts: Denver rockers The Yawpers, Fort Collins shoegaze act Sound of Ceres and folksinger Judy Collins performing with Ari Hest.

This wave follows the announcement that long-running Denver band Dressy Bessy will perform at the event.

SXSW Music takes place March 15-20 in various Austin venues. Notable acts on the bill include Waxahatchee, Thee Oh Sees, Thao & the Get Down Stay Down and many more. See the full lineup.

During an OpenAir studio session last year, Nate Cook of The Yawpers told us about how performances at SXSW 2014 led to a record deal with Bloodshot Records. Watch a video of the band playing in our CPR Performance Studio during that session below.
