First held in 1987, The South by Southwest Music Conference and Festival was a way for local artists in Austin, Texas to reach out to the rest of the world and touch base with the music industry.
Since then, SXSW has become an internationally acclaimed event, known for keeping its finger on the pulse of what’s happening and what’s coming up in the music industry. Its vision has only gotten wider with time, now showcasing film and technology as well with the additions of SXSW Film and SXSW Interactive. Annually transforming itself into a hotbed of fresh talent, Austin has become the place to go to keep on the forefront of contemporary culture.
This year, Spreaker will be there, too, scoping out the scene. We’re excited to be catching artists like Spoon and TV on the Radio, discover budding directors, and most importantly, take in the latest in apps, media, and tech.
Keep up with all our moves by following us on Twitter @spreaker during the event, kicking off on March 13th. If you’re attending, drop us a line below – we want to meet you!
