South By Southwest
$1,125+, March 8-17, Various locations, sxsw.com
If you’ve got money to blow, you might as well blow it at SXSW. Regarded as one of the most badass festivals in the world for its week-long schedule of film screenings, conferences, informative sessions, and live music, SXSW should definitely be one of those things you splurge on at least once. Hell, even just hanging around downtown Austin during SXSW will still let you feel like you’re experiencing it in some miniscule way. If you can’t scrap together enough cash before March, you can always sign up to volunteer
to get in on the fun.
