SXSW Music Festival
The SXSW Music Festival is one of the largest and most influential global music events of the year, featuring thousands of acts at over 100 venues all around Austin. The line-up features a comprehensive mix of brand new, up-and-coming, international and legendary performers planted all over Austin in bars, clubs, parks, churches, and elsewhere.
The SXSW Music and Media Conference takes place concurrently with the festival, and aims to educate and inspire musicians and those who work with them. Whether you're a grizzled music biz vet or a wide-eyed newbie, you'll find great discussions and unique opportunities to meet people who can help advance your ambitions.
