    Stormzy

    Hometown: London, England

    Just like Skepta last year, Stormzy comes into SXSW an unknown quantity for most American fans. The London MC will head out on his debut North American tour as soon as SXSW is over, but those in Austin will be treated to an energetic show from one of the UK's most charismatic performers. Stormzy is a commanding presence, and although the crowd might not know his material as well as they do in the UK, the results will probably be the same—complete and utter carnage, in the best way possible.
