SXSW - South by Southwest

SXSW is a huge annual festival - actually 3 fests/conferences rolled into one. It runs about 10 days over 2 weekends. The first part is technology, focused on emerging technology.

Second part is SXSW Film focusing on new directors and independent films. (Kinda like Robert Redford's Sundance, but bigger).

Third part is SXSW Music. 2000+ official bands (plus a lot more unofficial) on over 100 stages. A mix of upcoming bands and established names. Lady Gaga was keynote speaker last year. Snoop Dogg has that honor this year. Either Jon Stewart (or Colbert, I don't remember which) did his show from SXSW last year. Jimmy Kimmel is doing his show from here this year.

It's gone from a few hundred attendees back in the late 80's, early 90's to the largest of its kind (in all three areas) in the world.
