Discover the very best of indie culture at Austin’s renowned South-by-Southwest Music, Film and Interactive festival, showcasing 1,800 bands on 80 stages plus all that’s new and now in the worlds of film and interactive.
Situated in downtown Austin, Four Seasons Hotel Austin is conveniently located across the street from the Austin Convention Center and within walking distance of the city’s entertainment districts – including 6th Street, the Warehouse District and Rainey Street – as well as several SXSW festival venues. As an official SXSW hotel, Four Seasons Hotel Austin is your downtown headquarters for everything related to this exciting two-week event.
Visiting during Interactive or Film? Four Seasons' Back Lawn offers a respite from the festival frenzy, complete with hammocks, Adirondack chairs, lounge seating and a full bar serving draft beer, wines by the glass and hand-crafted cocktails.
Visitors attending the music portion of the festival also enjoy access to KUTX Live at the Four Seasons, an exciting music showcase taking place in the Hotel's ballroom each year. The annual live music event is produced by local Austin radio station KUTX and features 25- to 30-minute sets and candid interviews with some of the festival's most anticipated performers.
