Founded in 1987 by some of the same folks who started the Chronicle, SXSW has grown from a modest spring break fest into an internationally renowned, 10-days-long showcase for cutting-edge music, tech, film, and culture. Looking for the next big thing? There’s a good chance it gets its start at SXSW.

The Austin Chronicle is a super sponsor of SXSW.
