Festival Guide 2019

March in Austin means one thing.

 You know what we're talking about. Those 4 letters stand for more music, film, comedy, culture, networking, and all-out mayhem than you can shake a stick at. Love it or hate it, SXSW is a huge part of springtime in Austin. We're here so you don't have to do it alone. First things first, go ahead and RSVP to all of our parties during the fest.

 Where's the free beer? Where can you get a taco at 3 am after a show? Which parties are worth going to this year? 

These (and many, many others) are valid concerns! This behemoth of a festival is the kind of thing you need a game plan for! Which is exactly what this page will give you. Section by section, we've done our best to cover every conceivable angle to ensure everyone, local or out-of-towner, can have the best time possible at the festival this year. 

Check out The Festival Guide below, where we have tips for the official and unofficial sides of SXSW. We'll be periodically adding even MORE sections to this guide, so you should probably just bookmark this page right now.
