SXSW PanelPicker 2014

It's time to start thinking about SXSW Music 2015, and trust us, we can't believe it either.

We know you have ideas - great ideas - and these ideas that come to us through the PanelPicker process are the backbone of our Conference programming.

Maybe you're an expert, a veteran, or a well-connected exec. Maybe you're new to the music business, you've got a unique story, or you want to shake up the industry with a great concept. PanelPicker is the easiest path to pitch your session idea, get the community involved, and eventually present to the largest gathering of music professionals in the world at SXSW Music.

Last year, over 60% of all the Music Conference sessions came through PanelPicker, and they ran the gamut from workshops, panels, solo sessions, covering nearly every pressing topic in today's music world.

PanelPicker opens on July 1 and closes July 25, so start brainstorming your topic ideas and, if it's a panel, contacting colleagues that might be interested in joining. Flesh out your idea, decide what you want to cover and what the audience at SXSW needs to hear about. Stay tuned to our website for tips on best practices, new features, and examples of successful PanelPicker submissions in the coming weeks.

Get those gears moving and ideas flowing!
