SXSW 2011 Events: Your Quick Guide

Every year, Austin’s South by Southwest Conference brings together a stunning selection of thinkers and performers. From killer concerts to dynamic tech talks, it’s one huge testament to the power of live events—and many of SXSW’s industry leaders are using Eventbrite.

For starters, if you’re heading to Austin, check out our own bash at Empire Auto. Held in the middle of SXSW (on Wednesday 3/16), and featuring great indie bands, live graffiti art and more, it’s a perfect way to transition from the Interactive conference into the Music side. But don’t delay! As of this writing, the event is nearly sold out…

And that’s just the beginning. Our own Julia Hartz is speaking at a Social Commerce panel on Wednesday 3/15. And of course, Eventbrite is supporting tons of networking happy hours and pitch parties, tweetups and top-flight developer events. There’s even the ever-popular TechKaraoke! And because we know picking your agenda can be as overwhelming as it is exciting, we’ve assembled a quick and easy guide to SXSW parties, handily organized by date. So give it a glance, and find the events that are right for you.

See you in Texas!
