Subscribe: About SXSW: Started in 1987, South by Southwest (SXSW) is a set of film, interactive, and music festivals and conferences that take place early each year in mid-March in Austin, Texas. SXSW’s original goal was to create an event that would act as a tool for creative people and the companies they work with to develop their careers, to bring together people from a wide area to meet and share ideas. That continues to be the goal today whether it is music, film or interactive technologies. Connect with SXSW Online: Visit the SXSW WEBSITE: Like SXSW on FACEBOOK: Follow SXSW on TWITTER:
