 How to deal with Austin in the course of the pageant!

Let me begin by saying that having solely lived in Austin for a bit over a yr, I don’t personally think about myself a “native.” BUT, this can be my sixth SXSW, and I’ve additionally spent the final yr befriending a number of locals, so I assume I can undoubtedly shed some knowledge on the chaotic ten or so days which might be Southby. Austinites have various opinions on SXSW, and most would quite depart it than take it, however I nonetheless adore it. The metropolis is buzzing with all several types of power, from music to artwork to movie to extensive-eyed marvel and pleasure. As lengthy as you already know what to do and what to keep away from, it may be a blast. For these of you who’re new to the town or the pageant, listed here are some issues I’ve discovered through the years…


Think outdoors the field.

And by field, I imply Dirty Sixth and Rainey. It’s loopy to me that the primary couple of occasions I got here to SXSW, I thought these have been the one locations to go. I discovered myself ready in countless strains, badge and all, to get right into a packed bar the place I spent extra time making an attempt to get my footing than truly having fun with any music. This yr I’m excited to take a look at a number of the different occasions happening throughout SXSW; for instance, Willie Nelson’s . The annual occasion organized by the Nelson household takes place on Willie’s ranch simply outdoors the town, and tickets are restricted to maintain the crowds away. In addition to Willie himself, this yr will deliver Jenny Lewis, Lucius, Blitzen Trapper, and extra to the ranch.

I know the thought of getting up early throughout Southby is horrifying, however yearly native radio station KUTX places collectively an superior lineup of on the Four Seasons. Ten dollars will get you in, with breakfast tacos and limitless espresso as well. Another factor I’m excited to do that yr is attend a present on a ship. Local venue Hotel Vegas organized a number of that may happen removed from the downtown crowds – on a ship in the midst of Lady Bird Lake. Anyone can buy tickets, and the boats have open bars ;).


Support native

If you’re coming into Austin from elsewhere, do your half to provide again to the town and help the native artists – music and makers. A couple of nice venues to take a look at native artists are and . In addition to all the superior native expertise, Thee Oh Sees are enjoying 5 nights in a row at Vegas and all the time placed on an outstanding present. Just make sure that to get there early.

In addition to our superb music scene, Austin additionally has some unimaginable artists and makers. SXSW is a chance for them to share their work with all the guests on the town for the pageant. A great place during which to catch them is , Hotel San Jose’s annual SX occasion. Vendors embrace a few of the metropolis’s greatest classic slingers, , , , and . Our good pals will probably be there, in addition to pop-ups from a few my favorites, and .


Be ready to stroll.

Don’t even hassle driving. With hundreds of individuals – the president included – descending on the town, getting anyplace by automotive will typically take longer than in the event you have been to stroll. Biking is a fair higher choice, if in case you have a motorcycle or can lease one. I take pleasure in strolling in all places throughout SXSW – it provides you extra alternative to absorb all of the sights and sounds of Southby… plus, chances are you’ll stroll by a bar you had no intention of going to and be drawn inside by the candy sounds of a band you’ve by no means heard of however are about to turn into a fan of.


Eat all of the breakfast tacos.

And the non-breakfast tacos. It’s a fast, straightforward meal, that additionally occurs to be freaking scrumptious. There are tons of taco joints on the town, so attempt as many as you possibly can – however I’m a fan of .

+Hope everybody has a blast at SXSW this yr – when you’ve got any ideas make sure you share them within the feedback!
