1153 bands there. The best band on that list that I've heard is probably Robedoor. Though looking at bands I've seen live before, Japanther is worth seeing for anyone going.

$650 for a music festival?

that's ridiculous, regardless of how many bands may be playing. aren't there any single show/day tickets at all?

The reason I asked is because I don't think I know anyone who would pay so much money for a music festival, but I also imagine SXSW must be well attended. Maybe that's just those free shows then.

The most expensive one I've been to was ATP and that was half the price and included accomodation, just 2 days less than SXSW.

and thats only for the music portion. i'm sure the film shows would be quite cool too. but a music+film pass is over $1k

that's over $200 a day.

.... and you'd be spending a lot of time just getting in and out of all the different venues all over town.

tell me about it. i was seriously considering going to this. i saw the huge lineup and figured $200-250 for just the music, and I was going to consider that... but its just not doable at that price.

although, it was a steal at $550 if you purchase last september

ok i got the lowdown form some locals on another board:
the price to get into each show varies
you pay like $5-$15 bucks to get into shows if you dont have a pass.
and once you pay that price, you're able to get into that venue again for any other shows there.
the price to get into each show varies
i mean, thats what i did last year


there are a small number of shows that you can only get into with the badge, but these tend to be the bigger acts on the bill.

and to all the non-texans or those who haven't been to SXSW, it works like this: the shows are scattered around different venues in south austin/mostly downtown. when i got to meet and hang out with akron/family, they happened to be a playing a free show at a furniture store.

not every band does free shows at the festival. but judging by the bands that people are psyched about on here, i think you'd be able to get into any of those shows WITHOUT a badge. just my 2 cents.

one of the main reasons i would go... this is concerning, because its a "showcase", does that mean it will require the badge?

Badges are not necessary at all. Just about any show worth going to you can get in for a pretty normal entry fee ($10-15), including most label showcases. If you really must get into one of them fancy badge shows it's pretty easy to sneak in. Plus there are more free shows than you can imagine. I only ended up paying for two out of about ten shows the last time I was around for SXSW.

Cheers,
