The first names for next year’s South By South West festival have been revealed.

The Texas bash - set to take place between March 10th and 19th in Austin - has revealed the likes of Diet Cig, Welsh post-punk gang Chain Of Flowers (who are currently working on the follow-up to their ace debut album) and Creepoid amongst the first batch.

Elsewhere, there’s Trudy And The Romance (who wowed at our Great Escape showcase back in May), jangly types Hoops and recent Neu Bulletin bunch Never Young amongst the rabble.
