Nas, Vince Staples, Lucius, and 198 more

South by Southwest’s weekly lineup announcements concluded this morning, 11 days before the conference’s music portion commences. The addition of 201 acts includes all-time great MC Nas, Brooklyn pop artisans Lucius, and rising rapper Vince Staples, totaling the festival’s offerings around 2,100 acts.
