It’s that time of year again: South By Southwest is upon us! Whether you’ve got your badge and are ready to brave the crowds, or are planning on staying as far from downtown as possible, get in the festival spirit with our SXSW Flashback Marathon.
Beginning at 7 pm Sunday, March 15, relive the best moments from past SXSW’s without the parking woes or pricey admission. Top picks from each year since 2010 are highlighted in these specials, with intimate interviews and live performances that give viewers an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the iconic festival. With appearances by Channing Tatum, Willem Dafoe, Rosario Dawson, Matthew McConaughey, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Grumpy Cat and more, our SXSW Flashback marathon is not to be missed — and cheaper than a platinum badge, to boot.
