Dave Grohl's Sound City Players, some dude named Justin Timberlake added to SXSW lineup

Confirming rumors that have been floating around for months, both Dave Grohl’s Sound City Players and Justin Timberlake have been added to this year’s SXSW lineup. Grohl’s Players—including Stevie Nicks, John Fogerty, Rick Springfield, Corey Taylor, Alain Johannes, Rage Against The Machine’s Brad Wilk, and Fear’s Lee Ving—will play Stubb’s Wednesday, March 14.

Timberlake’s appearance is still a little more shrouded in secrecy. According to Austin’s KVUE, the singer is booked to play a private party sometime during the event, though Austin police have also heard rumblings about yet another surprise performance—one for which they're preparing "extra security," which doesn't at all suggest it could turn into a massive riot.

Other performers also just added to the fest include Iggy And The Stooges, Kendrick Lamar, Iron & Wine, Devendra Banhart, Tenacious D, Ghostface Killah, Pusha T, Big K.R.I.T., Youth Lagoon, Mikal Cronin, Reggie Watts, A Place To Bury Strangers, and more.

The music portion of the festival kicks off Tuesday, March 12 in Austin, Texas.
