Tips to Survive SXSW

  • Plan the night before what you want to attend
  • Don’t try and go to more than 4 events per day.
  • Leave 60 minutes to transition to and from events.
  • Make sure you have a extra power packs for you phone, you will most probably be out and about much longer than you expect and will want to call an uber home!
  • Keep hydrated and don’t skip meals
