What is SXSW?
SXSW Music - 13th-19th March| SXSW Interactive - 10th-14th March | SXSW Film - 10th-18th March 2017
SXSW Conferences and Festivals offers the unique convergence of original music, independent films, and emerging technologies. Fostering creative and professional growth alike, SXSW is the premier destination for discovery with 18,200+ music delegates and 2,200+ bands showcasing from 55 countries on 100+ stages.
By day, conference registrants do business in the SXSW Trade Show in the Austin Convention Centre and partake of a full agenda of informative, provocative panel discussions featuring hundreds of speakers of international stature. In 2013 SXSW Interactive attracted 31,600+ delegates and SXSW Film 16,200+ delegates thus becoming similarly important events for the international film and interactive sectors. The British music industry participates in SXSW Music to network, to raise the profile of the organisations they represent with influential people in the US and to use SXSW to publicise and market their work.
