The British Music Embassy, SXSW’s venue for break-out UK music stars, today announces seven more artists, finalizing 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. 

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.
This year is also The British Music Embassy’s biggest ever presence at SXSW, having moved from a 250-person venue to the 700 capacity Cedar Street Courtyard. Artists will play a 12 showcases run from Saturday 12 March to Saturday 19 March, split between four day-time and eight night-time shows:
