With a dizzying 2,200 acts on deck this year, it’s okay to be a little overwhelmed. It’s in the spirit of SXSW, even if it’s not punk rock. We’ve whittled it down to a select few artists you don’t want to miss, from Lissie at Willie Nelson’s Luck Ranch to Neon Indian at the SoulCycle Showcase at Spotify House. Also, catch Ray LaMontagne as he headlines SXSW Outdoor Stage, on Thursday, March 17.
