Holy smokes, I couldn't meet the mayor in Toronto and now he's at my show in Texas? - Blake Carrington (showcasing artist: Toronto, Ontario) I curated my first official Oy Vey! showcase, and it was 5 people from hitting capacity. I lost my car that night in the parking deck and wandered till 6 am to find it. It was the best worst experi- ence I could've asked for. - Kosha Dillz (showcasing artist) A s a first time attendee at SXSW, I realized there are way too many things to do, too many panel sessions, too many meetings, and of course too many showcases. I ran around Austin from one place to another the entire week, trying to take advantage of any opportu- nity and I never ate lunch. I returned to Bogotá with a well fed mind full of inspiration." - Gareth Gordon (Cámara de Comercio de Bogotá: Bogotá, Colombia) E very year, we see that SXSW thrives because it facilitates human interaction that is lacking in our everyday lives.

These raw, in-depth conversations unlock a beautiful side of these musicians that's rare to see. I'm awestruck and inspired every time. - Elliott Wilson (CRWN, Rap Radar) S XSW is one of my favorite events/festivals every year…it's all about the music and the vibe is always right.. - Big Sean (featured speaker) J O E L D E L A R O S A A M Y E .
