With South By Southwest in full swing, the mtvU Woodies has finalized its lineup.
British singer-songwriter James Bay will perform at the event, along with previously announced acts Years & Years, Big Sean and Fall Out Boy. The latter will perform a career-spanning set and be the first group ever inducted into the newly-minted Hall of Wood.
Presenters at the ceremony include Boyhood star Ellar Coltrane, Rae Sremmurd, MisterWives and Hoodie Allen.
The 2015 mtvU Woodie Awards airs live on MTV on Friday, March 20, at 9pm ET/PT from SXSW in Austin, TX. The show will be preceded by a day-long music event featuring performances by Action Bronson, Sremmurd, MisterWives, Raury, Ty Dolla $ign, Clean Bandit with Jess Glynne and Robert DeLong. Admission is free with an online RSVP (more on that here).
