You might be surprised to hear this but the lineup for SX isn’t fully announced until the weekend before it starts.
The first wave of acts/panelists are announced from August/September but it is pretty much a guessing game until March and even then, some artists have to pull out because of funding. We’ll explain how to create your own SX itinerary below.
Although Austin is the live music capital of the world, it’s not just about the music. Sessions include the topics of gender, health, business, marketing, self-help, etc. Sessions mainly take place in the Austin Convention Center.
Previous artists and speakers have included big names like Churches (2019) and CEO of Tesler/SpaceX (2018). However, SXSW is not about the known, it’s about the discovery of new talent from every genre.
