Alan Day is off at SXSW right now and will probably be doing a fair bit of booking work on Sonisphere's behalf. With this in mind, it would be unsurprising if we didn't get another announcement featuring a fair few SXSW bands before the end of the month. The most in-depth list of bands playing it that I've found is here
, and I've been browsing it for bands that could fit with Sonisphere's demographic enough to make them a potential booking for this year. This is who I've dug out:
- Potential SXSW to Sonisphere bands | Show
- Against Me!
Foxboro Hot Tubs
Miss May I
Of Mice & Men
Public Service Broadcasting
We Were Promised Jetpacks
I'm sure there's others, but those are the ones that jumped out at me. Some of them strike me as far more likely than others, but I'd definitely be happy to see a bunch of these at Sonisphere.
