3. South by Southwest
The thing we love most about SXSW is that it’s more than just about music. The weeklong interactive festival features an eclectic mix of independent movie screenings, along with art installations for a completely immersive experience. In addition, SXSW 2014 features over 1,700 musical acts from all over the globe descending upon downtown Austin, making it a hotspot for industry insiders in search of fresh new talent. If you’re in it for the music, plan on being in Austin, Texas during March 11-16.
