This Melbourne event will help your band get to SXSW

Eight great speakers with over 50 years of combined SXSW experience will come together to share their knowledge. 

The meet 'n' greet is designed to inform bands on how to best apply for showcasing and get accepted into SXSW early, covering topics including strategising exposure, secrets on how to negotiate the crowds and getting around, how to prepare, communications, networking, logistics and follow-through.
The Melbourne event will feature the knowledge of Paul Chashmere (Executive Producer of Noise 11 and 8X SXSW veteran), George Hedon (Founder / Director of Pause Festival Melbourne), Ben Keenan (The Thought Police, Creative Director) and  Ant Celestino (General Manager of One Love Music Group and 6x SXSW veteran). 

It's going down at The Corner Hotel on Wednesday August 2.
