With the coolest music, tech and film components, SXSW is THE event of the year to attend. But is the $2000 conference badge too pricey for you? No worries! We've gathered up our favorite ways in which you can enjoy the Austin shindig for little or no money. For the full list of activities (both free and not-so-free), check out the SXSW website.
Keeping track of all the different concerts, food tents and films happening during SXSW can be pretty stressful if you have to do it alone. But if you're willing to cough up less than $50, you can avoid the dirty work by registering on RSVPster. They'll make sure you're on every guest list possible -- even those you don't know about! -- so you won't waste any research time. But we recommend using an old email address or making a new one, because they continue sending emails after SXSW is over.
