The SXSW Music Festival, one of the largest, most influential, and most anticipated music events of the year, is ready for 2015! At SXSW 2014, more than 28,000 music industry professionals and musicians attended six nights of music performed by over 2,300 acts representing 57 foreign countries at over 100 venues in downtown Austin, Texas.

For 2015, SXSW plans on keeping with our tradition of bringing you even more of the absolute best mix of brand new, up-and-coming, international and legendary musical performances, planted all over Austin in bars, clubs, parks, churches and elsewhere. As has been the case since we started in 1987, attending SXSW is a must for the music and creative industry professional.
