The SXSW® Music and Media Conference is back for its 27th year. Our reputation as the biggest and most anticipated convergence of all things music is being kept alive by our continued effort to offer compelling daytime programming and stellar nighttime showcases.
Much attention has been given to the ongoing commercial success of dance music in an otherwise turbulent music industry, and the 2013 Music Conference aims to illuminate and explore the world of EDM and what's made it so prosperous in recent years.
For registrants and artists attending the SXSW Music Conference & Festival, a variety of hotel options are waiting. Hotels in the immediate walking area are sold out and their waiting lists are open for Music Festival dates. However, savvy travelers who plan ahead might prefer to bypass the waitlist and go ahead and secure a great hotel at the best possible rate.
With the end of the year nigh (or world as some might say) "Best of 2012" lists are popping up everywhere. Rolling Stone, Billboard, Pitchfork, Spinner, The AV Club and Gorilla vs. Bear, just to name a few, are all hosting multiple "Best Ofs." Some have even deigned to include some not so best-ofs as well (see Pitchfork's "Worst Album Covers" and AV Club's "Least Essential Albums").
New! 2014 dates!
