From March 10-19, some 2,000 acts will descend upon Austin, Texas to showcase their music. This year, 24 Australian women will have their chance to woo and wow industry heavyweights at South by Southwest, a place where the likes of John Mayer, Bon Iver, Feist, Norah Jones, Katy Perry and Hanson made a solid name for themselves, and where last year, a keynote address was given by none other than the 44th President of the United States Barack Obama, and the First Lady, Michelle Obama. The festival is getting bigger every year with performances historically given by Lady Gaga and Willow Smith. Who knows what will happen? For now celebrate Australian women headed to the deep south. Songs by Vera Blue, Alex Lahey, Julia Jacklin, Middle Kids, Tkay Maizda, Wilsn, Gabriella Cohen, Woodes, Elsz, Beth Brown, All Our Exes Live In Texas, Starley, Phantastic Ferniture, Sui Zhen, Coconut Kids, Totally Mild and The Heart Collectors
