It’s a Busy Weekend in Austin, Texas

Posted on May 05, 2017 by Alyssa Zucker

Austin, Texas is a hub for creatives, hippies, artists, and musicians. Being the live music capital of the world, the city is booming just about every night of the week. Zilker Park, along with beautiful Texas weather, offers opportunity for festivals and other large events downtown. It’s already been a busy week, and Austin is going to be buzzing this weekend, so we thought we’d catch you up on what’s going on in case you don’t have any plans!

ACL Festival: What Your Really Need To Know

ACL Festival: What Your Really Need To Know

Posted on Oct 01, 2015 by Tanner Hertzog

October is here, and you know what that means: ACL fest is back! For the next two weekends, Zilker Park will be transformed into a live music haven. With a lineup featuring headliners like Drake, Foo Fighters, The Weeknd, and The Strokes, it is surely one you do not want to miss. First things first, get a plan together: The last thing you want to do is miss a band you wanted to see, or lose someone in your group. Rather than trying to decide on the fly, take a few minutes before you get to the show and get in a huddle and make a “game plan.” The day-by-day schedule is available, so get together, make a plan, and stick to it. This will take away a lot of the stress that can come from arguing at the park about who to go see, for how long, etc. PRO TIP: Don’t try to see half of one show and half of another. Instead, pick one show (yes, this is not an easy decision) and stay for the whole time. This will allow you to have one epic hour of music, with a nice view, rather than two twenty minute shows, with a ten minute sprint in between landing you in the back of both shows. Be smart with your packing: Before leaving for the festival, be sure to review all the restrictions that ACL has on items being brought into the park.

HMG must haves:

  • Backpack/Camelback 
  • Sunscreen
  • Water bottle
  • Sunglasses
  • Camera/Phone for pictures and videos
  • Cash
  • ID

Posted on Mar 30, 2015 by Ryan Gardner

Just like that, that’s a wrap of SXSW 2015. We had a great time checking out Interactive panels and keynotes, some films, and great bands in the sun (and a lot of rain). To wrap it up, we will be running two blogs: this one on awards and then an upcoming one on top speakers. Two of the most important awards for Interactive honor incredibly innovative companies, products, and startups. The SXSW Accelerator Startup Competition has 48 technology companies go head-to-head in a two-day competition with six winners, while the SXSW Interactive Innovation Awards focuses on evolving and broadening trends of the digital industry, giving out fourteen awards and four special honors.
