SXSW 2018 is in the books and, as always, we had an amazing time. Austin, Texas provides a unique landscape for this massive, de-centralized music festival; you not only get to discover incredible new bands but some pretty rad bars and venues as well. We saw a total of 53 bands this year across 4 days, and if you’d like to check out each band, we made a playlist just for you. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to see three of our top twenty must-see bands, but of the ones we did see they did not disappoint. We were also treated to some awesome surprises, including our favorite artist we saw during the week. Here are our highlights of SXSW 2018, and be sure to follow the playlist!
