Free Events at SXSW Music March 14 – 18, 2019
Now that SXSW Interactive is pretty much over, I’ll be able to relax a little bit, but I might still take advantage of some of the free events at SXSW music.
After Interactive, there are still lots of free SXSW shows and parties and it looks like you don’t need a badge for many of these. Although, you do need to usually RSVP. In addition, free food and drinks are also available at various times.
For a combination of music, parties, and education head over to Culture Collide. Last year, there were Stub Hub SXSW shows, Twix parties, SXSW M&M parties, and more.

If you want to have a happy South by Southwest experience, then here are some recommended items.
What to bring to SXSW.
For all of your swag, get a lightweight packable backpack such as one of these.
When visiting Austin, you’ll want to bring along a rain jacket. You never know how Texas weather is going to be.
For networking, don’t forget to bring your business cards.
During the festival, you’ll be using your phone a lot for maps, verifying RSVPs, communicating, and more. In order to not run out of battery juice, make sure you have a backup battery option.
