Highlights from SXSW 15
SXSW just concluded; the hybrid interactive, film, and music festival that has been taking over your newsfeed and favorite news outlets, and for good reason. The newest and most exciting technology, movies, and musicians come out to be showcased in Austin during these two weeks and thus it justifiably becomes a media and networking frenzy. We’ve been in the streets all week, attending panels, racking up miles on our fitbits, dancing, and sweating in the humid Texas heat, and getting our fill of tasty barbecue and beer. We’ve lined up tell all interviews with the artists you need to know and our photographers have captured the excitement and energy that this international crowd somehow sustains for 2 weeks time. So many highlights to recount including an enlightening panel with Nicola Formichetti, visually stunning performances by ODESZA, booty-shaking smackdowns from the likes of Big Sean and T-Pain, hanging with Elliphant, a contender for coolest chick in music right now, getting wooed and serenaded by The Weeknd, being served out of a foodtruck by Action Bronson, and going up on multiple days of the week with iLoveMakonnen. It may have been the biggest and best year for SXSW yet, you can be sure we’re already planning for next year!
