SXSW 2017 already looks like it’s going to be epic, the underground scene is booming with upcoming artists. So that means we are ready to catch the shows, and there’s some pretty big ones out there. But first I gotta put some people on game. For those who are already familiar with how SXSW is then you already know how it is, for those who are new to SXSW this is for you.
A portable charger
At SXSW it seems though our phones die faster, and what really sucks is there’s really no place to charge them. So an important thing to bring is a portable charger so you stay charged up the whole time you’re out there.
Ladies don’t go out there in some heels or some outrages ass shoes, you’re literally gonna be walking all day and standing you’re feet will hurt so wear some cozy sneakers. I mean if you wanna wear heels go right ahead but I promise your feet will be hurting.
Don’t bring CDs
If you’re an artist don’t bring a bunch of CDs those end up on the floor and nobody really listens so you basically just wasted your money. And for those who aren’t artists but offer other services or you just have a brand business cards are the way to go it’s simple and it’s something they can put in their pocket. Really anything but CDs basically I hate seeing them on the floor.
There’s so many shows going on it overwhelms you, so if it’s your first year attending or even second make sure you plot on what shows you really wanna attend so you’re not crowding up 6th street. Another thing is if you’re with a big group of friends some of y’all might end up wanting to do different things. So plan the shows you wanna pull up to.
For some reason for the last couple of years it’s rained at SXSW so make sure you bring a poncho or a jacket or anything to protect you from the rain.
Most importantly build, connect, vibe, and have fun SXSW is about having a lit ass time but also to network with others to get yourself out there. It’s the perfect place to build.

Rising DFW artist 20k Jay looks to make a big splash with the release of his Ice Age mixtape. The rapper’s trap lyrics and ability to to form relatable situations with his bars is his strong suit.
