SXSW/Bonnaroo 2014 Crossover – Thursday’s Artists
Another month, another festival! While OEB 2.0 is still in construction, the music never stops as we travel through the summer days and nights of 2014. As always, we’d like to kick off our coverage, focused on emerging artist recommendations from the bottom half of a dozen festival lineups, highlighting our favorite bands that showcased at SXSW and are hitting the Tennessee farm next weekend.
I’ll get more into some music-nerd stats through the weekend, but there is a ton of crossover between festivals this year. On Thursday alone, 14 of 35 artists are showcasing at SXSW and Bonnaroo 2014, 6 of which scored top marks at Operation Every Band:
3:00 - The Preatures – That Tent
3:30 – The Unlikely Candidates – New Music on Tap Lounge
7:45 - MS MR – The Other Tent
8:00 - Catfish & the Bottlemen – The Sonic Stage
10:00 – Banks – This Tent
11:00 - Hunter Hunted – New Music on Tap Lounge
More Bonnaroo “bottom half” artist recommendations through the next week!
