A visit to the 2014 South by Southwest Music, Film, and Interactive Festival
South by Southwest is the largest festival of its kind in the world, with more than 2,000 bands, 250 movies, and a total attendance this year topping 150,000.
The festival is a launching pad for movies, music, and new technologies. For example, the founders of Twitter say their presence at the 2007 festival was a key factor in the social-media company’s success.
South By Southwest has become perhaps the best event in the world for assessing the current state of culture and predicting its future direction.
