Festival Hub: South by Southwest

South By Southwest (SXSW) 2016

March 11-20, 2016

Austin, TX

The Scene
It’s not that South by Southwest takes over Austin — downtown Austin becomes SXSW for nine days in March. Music, art, interactive, panels, comedy, and movies all vie for your attention span. Let’s put it this way. You could skip media for a year, come to Austin for the week, and still come out ahead on pop culture.
