Welcome to SXSW 2013
The South by Southwest® (SXSW®) Conferences & Festivals (March 8-17, 2013) offer the unique convergence of
original music, independent films, and emerging technologies. Fostering creative and professional growth
alike, SXSW® is the premier destination for discovery.
There are so many amazing bands at SXSW that it can be hard to catch all of
them in 5 days. In case you missed some of the amazing artists that were
playing in Austin, or you're just feeling nostalgic about last week,
check out this collection of playlists from some of our tastemaker friends
including NME, Boiler Room, Pitchfork, Filter, All Hip Hop and of course
Paul Gordon's The Happy Poet delighted SXSW audiences during the 2010 edition. Well now the "all organic, mostly vegetarian comedy" finally hits the big screen again.
The film will receive a one week engagement at Santa Monica's Laemmle 4-plex this Friday, March 22. Director Paul Gordon and producer David Hartstein will conduct Q&As following the Friday and Saturday 7:30pm screenings. For more info check out this page and head here for tickets.
We're pleased to announce the winners of the first annual Grulke Prize.
The Prize, awarded in three categories, was developed in honor of our friend and colleague Creative Director Brent Grulke, who passed away on August 13, 2012.
Brent's love of music and the spirit of the festival is reflected in the three Prize categories: Developing US Act, Developing Non-US Act and Career Act.
Taco Bell’s Feed the Beat® returned to Austin this year as presenting sponsor of Hype Machine’s Hype Hotel with events taking place March 11 – March 16. The venue was home to some of this year’s top performances, including various musicians from the Feed the Beat program. Fans who were in Austin on March 11 were able to attend the “Feed the Beat: SXSW 2013” for free through a RSVP process where a first of it's kind "rockumentary" was filmed using footage captured and shared by members of the audience. Additionally, Taco Bell’s new Cool Ranch Doritos® Locos Tacos were served FREE to fans who came by the Hype Hotel.
