SXSW Music & Film Festival 09

Following Langerado another big festival early this year is non other than the South By Southwest Music and Film Festival in Austin, Texas. The best thing about this festival is that it's about the up and coming artists and filmmakers rather than the established. As the Fleet Foxes did last year, many bands break out from this festival and hit it big. You can be sure there will be many indie labels and PR firms holding showcases there featuring their best artists and tons of industry people looking for the next big thing.

Some of the bands performing this year include Ra Ra Riot, Beach House, Ben Harper's new band Relentless 7, White Lies and a whole lot more.

Whether you want to make industry connections, attend panels or check out all the buzz bands, with Austin as it's background you can bet it's going to get crazy down there. The only problem I have with this festival is that it's so expensive, but if you got the dough it may be fun and good for your musical career?

SXSW runs from March 13-22
Interactive: March 13-17
Film: March 13-21
Music: March 18-22
