Last year I was lucky enough to go out and represent SoundCloud at SXSW as we were nominated in the ‘music category’ at the SXSW Interactive Web Awards. In a few weeks we’ll be back again and this time we have lots of parties, panels and plans to tell you about. It’s gonna be a great week.
If you’re going and would like to hook up then please get in touch or feel free to stop Alex & I in the street and ask for some stickers and a chat! We’ll be updating this post over the next few days as we confirm all our plans in more detail. There’s quite a few things going on during both Interactive & Music. Here’s where you’re most likely to find us.
