Aronofsky joins previously announced keynote speakers author Ta-Nehisi Coates and fellow director Barry Jenkins of Moonlight fame.
Urban's appearance, while not billed as a keynote address, comes in a long line of memorable musicians to speak at SX in recent years, including Dave Grohl, Bruce Springsteen, Lady Gaga, and Snoop Dogg. This year's music keynotes include Zane Lowe and GRAMMY-winning artist/producer Nile Rodgers.
