SXSW Music Festival Names Names

In the first major release of information about the South By Southwest Music Festival, organizers have announced the first set of names for the 2006 music festival.

Neil Young has been named as the keynote speaker. He will participate in a conversation with Jonathan Demme, who created the film Neil Young / Heart Of Gold, a film set to debut at the SXSW Film Festival. The film chronicles a series of Young performances in Nashville, where he performed material from his album Prarie Wind.

SXSW has also announced an initial set of performers. Names include Belle and Sebastian, The Earlies, Echo and the Bunnymen, and The Juan Maclean. The list is subject to change and more names will be added as confirmed.
