ATXgossip’s annual tradition continues with a constantly updated list of which celebrities are confirmed to attend SXSW 2017.

In regards to speculation, we will publish separate posts.

This list contains confirmed celebs only.

As usual, the term “celebrity” is difficult to define. Most of the list will be comprised of actors who have started to make a name for themselves. Some musicians, athletes and comedians will make the list due to their level of awareness. If you see someone missing from the list that you feel should be included, post a note in the comments below.

Also, because Rodeo Austin overlaps with SXSW 2017, the acts performing on those overlapping dates are included. Since the Texas Film Awards serve as the unofficial kick off to the festival, those attendees are listed as well.
