Wet Leg, Maisie Peters and more complete outstanding British Music Embassy line-up at SXSW

The British Music Embassy, SXSW’s venue for break-out UK music stars, today announces seven more artists, finalising its line-up of the best new British music. Band-of-the-moment and BBC Sound of 2022 alumni Wet Leg join the bill alongside Maisie Peters, the up-and-coming singer-songwriter who counts Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift amongst her fans. Joining them are producer, songwriter, vocalist and visual artist Babii, Black feminist punk band Big Joanie, alt-trio Calva Louise, contemporary R&B artist and singer/songwriter Col3trane and five-piece Irish band Just Mustard. They join an already exceptional line-up of British artists, including Baby Queen, Priya Ragu, Self Esteem and Yard Act. Music News will be there to bring you all the latest so stay tuned.

The British Music Embassy consistently hosts artists who go on to be the biggest acts in UK music. 2022 BRIT Award with Mastercard nominees AJ Tracey, Dave, Glass Animals, Little Simz and Sam Fender all played the British Music Embassy on their way to critical and commercial acclaim.
