Organizer's behind next year's South by Southwest Music Festival have already booked the first wave of performers. 

The initial lineup for the Austin, Texas event features acts like home state rockers Los Lonely Boys, British metal band Bring Me the Horizon, and singer-songwriter Jessica Lea Mayfield, who previously worked with the Black Keys. 

As it stands now, the lineup includes a total of 183 acts.  But "Rolling Stone" points out that that's only a small portion of the more than 2,000 performers who will take one of the many stages at South by Southwest when the list is complete. 


The 2014 gathering is scheduled to take place March 7th through the 16th.
