SXSW® Festivals 2018

February 21, 2018

Looking for something to do in Austin next month? Look no further than the 2018 SXSW® festivals which begin on Friday, March 9. Explore festivals spanning over ten days and four genres including music, comedy, film and interactive showcases.


It is hard to believe how many parties, awards, screening and showcases they fit into those ten days – just look at this schedule! Where else can you see bands and screen films from all over the world? You can also catch the likes of comedians such as Bob Odenkirk, Doug Benson, Horatio Sanz, Janeane Garofalo, Michael Ian black, Nick Kroll, Nick Swardson, Whitney Cummings and Wanda Sykes. And don’t forget about the parties and networking opportunities.


You can register to attend now although you have missed the deadlines for cheaper fares. And if you are missing out on SXSW® or just have some time in between events, head over to nearby SkyHouse Austin located just off Rainey Street. Stop into one of the on-site retailers; grab a drink at Emmer & Rye, grab a slice at Salvation Pizza and if you are not in the mood for pizza, stop in to Royal Blue Grocery where you are sure to find something to fix your craving.
