The South by Southwest music, film and media festival is one of the entertainment industry's biggest annual get-togethers. Hosted by Austin Convention Center, it features hundreds of gigs, day and night, at venues all over the city.
South by Southwest, otherwise known as SXSW, started out as a music and media event in 1987, and now incorporates a film festival and a new media conference into its burgeoning programme. While a fair amount of wheeling and dealing definitely goes on, the amazing line-up of concerts gives proceedings a festival feel.

There are also movie screenings, exhibitions, trade shows and panel discussions for the industry crowd at South by Southwest.

For full details of the programme, please visit the South by Southwest website.
