After attending SXSW as a member of the public without any type of badges or tickets the last 2 years, I had a completely different level of access as an acting member of the press. I want to use the insane amount I was able to experience as a pitch to why you NEED to attend this one of a kind festival. If you aren't very familiar with everything that SXSW offers to its attendees, I want this to serve as a walkthrough of the insane amount of variety at the palm of your hands in Austin.
Included in my coverage are concerts from both legends (DMX, Nelly, Miguel, Wyclef, Tom Morello) and newcomers (DaBaby, Tierra Whack, J.I.D, Reason, Cautious Clay) alike, panel sessions from some of the most influential people in the world from various fields (Trevor Noah, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Nardwuar), creative pop up installations from a huge variety of companies (Amazon, ADP, Vice, ACLU, LG, Torchy's, CannabisNow), and SO much more!
You will be absolutely blown away by how much is available to take in at this festival. Between the music, panel sessions, pop up bars, food, drinks, people, and everything else the city of Austin has to offer, this is a life changing experience waiting to happen. Extended individual recaps of all events are available on the playlist below as well! See you in 2020!
