Sports Illustrated is scooting all up in our territory over here, coupling a showcase of 17 up-and-coming musical acts with their immensely-popular (for the articles, I swear!) annual Swimsuit Issue. Ten of those artists will play the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Beauties & Beats showcase – which, again, is a real thing – including headliner Black Lips, White Denim and Delta Spirit.
Here’s the full lineup for the showcase, which takes place Feb. 15th at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas:
- Black Lips
- Delta Spirit
- Elan Atias & White Elephant
- J. Roddy Walston & The Business
- Little Hurricane
- Nick Waterhouse
- White Denim
Billboard made the announcement today, which has some more relevant info on the project, assuming you like wading through press quotes. Here’s the meat of it:
Ten of the 17 selected artists will participate in the Vegas festival: Delta Spirit, Elan Atias & White Elephant, J. Roddy Walston & The Business, Little Hurricane, Maluca, Nick Waterhouse, Vonnegutt, Selebrities, White Denim and headliners The Black Lips. Seven other artists will be featured editorially: Bosco Delrey, DJ A-Trak, Hanni El Khatib, Kito & Reija Lee, New Look, Rhye, Toro Y Moi and The newno2. Each artist will be paired with a different model in the magazine and online, with new or previously unreleased tracks from each respective artist.
Hotttt! The Swimsuit Issue comes out on National Singles Awareness Day – February 14th.
