South by South West continues to release the names of artists set to perform at this year's music festival, covering every genre from hip hop to electric dance music. On Monday (March 7), Billboard released the official lineup for YouTube's SXSW 2016 show. Fans can expect Future, Kehlani, Blood Orange, Jamie XX, and more to hit the stage.

Future will headline on Wednesday (March 16), while Blood Orange is scheduled to headline the following night (Thursday, March 17), and Jamie XX will act as the closing performer on Friday (March 18). The three-day event will take place at the YouTube Music stage at Coppertank Events Center in Austin, Texas.

The festivities kickoff around 3 p.m. with an eclectic mix of seasoned and breakout artists rocking the microphone before the headliners take the stage. The popular video streaming service has helped propel the careers of some of the festival's featured artists like Troye Sivan, Aurora, and The Range.

This has been one hell of a year so far for Future and it's only three months in! The 32-year-old kicked off the year when he dropped Purple Reign in mid-January. Laced with thirteen tracks executive-produced by Metro Boomin and DJ Esco, the mixtape a hit overnight. In February, Future debuted his fourth studio album, EVOL, through DJ Khaled's Beats 1 radio show, We The Best. The album climbed to the top of the Billboard charts.

It didn't stop there. This past Saturday (March 5), Future visited Saturday Night Live for the first to perform his radio hit "Low Life," surprising the viewers with a surprise guest appearance from The Weeknd. He also showed off his comedic side by helping host Jonah Hill deliver a hilarious sing-a-long monologue.
