It’s that time of year! Austin’s famous South by Southwest (SXSW) music festival and conference is back, and we’re diving right into the fun. If you’re headed south, catch some tunes and rays with us or, better yet, find us behind the mic talking a ton about music and tech on these panels:

During SXSW Interactive, come see Marty Ringlein, Eventbrite’s Head of Research and Development, on the Every Tech Brand Has an R&D Mission. What Works? panel Sunday, March 10. Take home insights on how R&D departments with out-of-the-box thinkers can drive real innovation and “the next big thing.”

If you’re in town for SXSW Music, don’t miss the Small is the New Big: Why It’s All About Micro-festivals session Wednesday, March 13. Eventbrite’s Head of Music Strategy Biasha Mitchell will be steering an awesome panel of “microfestival” experts from House of Vans, Gonerfest, and Huichica.

On the venue and artist front, dive deep with Eventbrite’s Greg Patterson and other music experts from Pluto Arts, United Talent Agency, and Force Media Management on the Is the Festival Explosion Ruining the Industry? panel on Thursday, March 14. Learn how the surge of new festivals is impacting the supply side of future mega acts.

We hope to see you there! For more information on SXSW’s lineup of events, check out
