Austin’s, Texas’ South by Southwest (SWSW) Music Festival is one of the largest and most anticipated music festivals in the United States. Over 2,000 acts representing 55 countries play at over 100 venues over six days, and almost as many place at non-official shows hosted all over the city. There’s the tech, movies and comedy to talk about too (plus newbie topic, environmentalism), but the star of South By will always and forever be the music.
