Being British, We went to Austin, TX for the SXSW festival confident that we had the measure of the thing. We like to think we know how to run a festival in the UK, how could this compete ?
Well they took our Glastonbury and smeared it across a city. Bands fell where they may. Roof tops, car parks, disused railway yards, occasionally they even played concert venues.
At it's heart though, SXSW is still about the business of music. Bands come to work hard; most bands we spoke to had around a dozen shows over the course of the four day festival.
Delirium sets in. Futures are won, Voices are lost.
We've tried to capture some of the excitement, and sense of pioneering discovery here in our SXSW special, we scored interviews with Alabama Shakes, Daughter, Django Django, and Dry the River.
