South by Southwest (SXSW) is held in Austin, TX once a year in March. It’s one of the largest music festivals in the United States and people come from all over the world to participate.. With more than 1,400 performers playing in more than 80 venues around Austin over four days, it is quite the Austin experience

SXSW hooks up with local Austin music events such as the annual Austin Music Awards show. And South by Southwest is a huuuuge money maker for Austin..

SXSW started in 1987, and added film and interactive conferences in 1994. It’s primarily in the downtown Austin Convention Center… with music events happening in surrounding areas.

The SXSW Film has become one of the world’s premiere film festivals, focusing on new directing talent. And the SXSW Interactive part has a super strong following as well with web creators and entrepreneurs. SXSW Interactive encourages new ideas and creative technologies. They hopped onboard tweeting with Twitter in 2007 which was a little ahead of the game. At this writing (2010) there are still major companies that haven’t joined the social media madness.

South by Southwest – SXSW Stats

SXSW began in 1987
Film and interactive conferences added 1994
12,000 music lovers for the Austin concerts
