SXSW is a festival that is truly centered at the intersection of technology and culture.
Although MistyWest is primarily a technology company, we believe music is a key part of a shared global culture that we all participate in, regardless of industry. In the lead up to SXSW Interactive, we look forward to checking out all the conference panels and keynote sessions (including our very own First Principles First panel on March 9!) but also many of the musical artists that will be showcasing during our time in Austin.
Here are some tunes to provide a SXSW-themed soundtrack for your travels. If you’re not attending this year, here’s a FOMO- inducing playlist to expose you to some new and familiar artists that you can bump wherever you are.
We’ve also tagged the relevant showcase links in case you want to check these talented people out in person (plus one super-secret surprise artist who may or may not be performing. But you didn’t hear it from us. Shhh.).
