South By Southwest or SXSW, happens every year and many people are out of the loop with not knowing when it happens and what it is even about. This will help clarify some things and hopefully peak some anticipation toward the conference.

The entire conference spans from March 7 to 16. However the live music portion will be from March 11 to 16. This is a massive conference and there will be people from all over the country if not all over the world.

Yes, SXSW is a music conference that has expanded now to encompass many facets of the entertainment industry. The conference has panel discussions, book readings, interactive workshops, film screenings, and music showcases that take place at conventional theaters to gorilla style events at bicycle shops.

Expect 1,700 artists to showcase! That means careful planning is necessary to catch some acts that absolutely cannot be missed but also venture out to check out a complete unknown that could be tomorrows rage.

One cannot miss moment, for example, may be the Neil Young interview or the Funny or Die workshop on social media or perhaps the Nerdy music panel discussion. These are just a few of the examples of how comprehensive SXSW really is, it is so much more than just new music showcases.

The genres that will be featured at SXSW range from alt county to hip hop to world music, and everything in between.

More is come on this topic including past breakout artists' that got their big break from SXSW and some finalized dates and venues from groups that are expected this year.
