More than 100 Canadian acts perform at SXSW each year and hundreds of Canadian delegates make the trip to Texas, representing nearly every Canadian record label, as well as media, PR, technology, and all other areas of the industry. At the 2017 edition, new, developing, and established artists from 63 countries were represented amongst the 2,000-plus official performers. Showcases are curated by record labels, booking agencies, management and PR firms, export offices, publishers, media outlets, lifestyle brands, festivals, and more.
