  • Taxis – Head to a hotel or I-35 access road to catch one
  • Taxis Alternatives – Uber and Lyft
  • Parking – Try to get downtown before noon
  • Walking – Lots
  • Bicycles – Helps cut down on the walking

Parties

Many SXSW attendees are here for business. So, expect a lot of side conversation during performances. If you are there for the music try to get to the front and remember earplugs.

  • RSVP for everything – create a separate email account (rsvpster)
  • Have a backup plan or four print them out (phones die)
  • Arrive early  – lining up an hour or two early is sometimes the only way to get into a “must see” party or shows
  • If you are not having fun, leave
  • Find new music
  • Make friends
  • Tip the bartender – even if the drinks are free

Food

  • Some parties will have food – Check the RSVP (follow @SouthByFreeNOMS on Twitter)
  • Food Trucks are awesome
  • Taco, Taco, Taco– (Torchy’s Secret Menu – my pick is Trailer Park Hillbilly Style)
  • BBQ – If you need a break and have a car head to Lockhart for authentic Central Texas BBQ
  • Many more – Check Yelp or Urban Spoon

Official Music Showcases

  • Arrive early
  • Usually you can get in after the badges and wristbands for $5 – $15
