A stack of Aussie favourites have been invited to perform at the SXSW 2021 event. 

The annual Texas music conference and festival, which was forced to axe its 2020 event, will go ahead from 16-20 March as an online event due to the ongoing COVID pandemic.

Local acts invited to perform include Alice Skye, Didirri, Alexander Biggs, No Money Enterprise, The Merindas, Kee'ahn, Death By Denim, Beans, Indigo Sparke and Shannen James.

They join a list of other invited artists like New Zealand's Purple Pilgrims and UK acts including Sorry and Squid. 

More bands and artists will be announced at a later date.
