SXSW veteran, Elliott Suthers gives the inside track on the must-attend events
Next week, the technology and media communities make their annual pilgrimage to Austin, Texas, for SXSW – a 10-day all-you-can-eat-buffet of tech, film, music and parties.
Entering its 21st year in 2017, SXSW has evolved from a regional music festival with just a few hundred attendees to one of the must-do cultural events of the year. In the past few years alone guests have included President Obama and Vice President Biden, Elon Musk, Lady Gaga, Al Gore, Mike Tyson, Kayne West, and the undisputed star of 2013’s show, Grumpy Cat.
But for all the culture available to SXSW’s attendee list, it’s important not to forget what the festival’s all about – having fun (and a few too many craft beers), and networking!
So with this in mind, we have hand-curated a list of the hottest events going on in Austin over the next couple of weeks. Note that while most of the events on the list are open to badge holders, many require an RSVP or special link. For a full list of our recommended events, please download the PDF.
