South by Southwest (SXSW) is one of the biggest — if not the biggest — music industry event in the world (with tech not far behind). And just months after the last one finished, SXSW organizers have now confirmed dates for next year.
From March 7-16 of 2014, droves of creative and business professionals will gather in Austin, TX (although rumors have been flying around about a possible relocation to Las Vegas) to interact and foster each other's growth in the film and music industry.
If you have an idea that you would like to bring to the table, the SXSW PanelPicker, a community conference-building platform, opens Monday, July 1st. Applications for performers for the 2014 SXSW Music Festival will be accepted starting July 9th by Sonicbids.
Lastly, registration and housing applications start August 1st.
And if you're an Austin local, be happy: you've now been given advanced warning on when exactly you should leave town!
