Reflecting both the creative and technological spirits of Austin, South by Southwest (SXSW) will take over Austin March 12- 21. Headquartered in downtown Austin, SXSW encompasses music, film and interactive programs and events.
Perhaps the most popular aspect of SXSW is the music portion, which features over 2,000 bands on more than 80 stages in nine days. Some of our favorite downtown Austin hotspots showcasing musical talent from Austin and all over the world include Auditorium Shores, Stubbs and the historic Paramount Theatre.
