The 20 Best Day Parties At SXSW 2015

House Of Vans Mohawk - SXSW 2014

Other music festivals pride themselves in scenery and a striking sense of “culture” (think Burning Man), but South By Southwest dispels both thanks to its ingenious attraction: day parties. Thousands of artists visit Austin every year and every iteration introduces a whole new crop of events that rodeo somewhere between “showcases” and “tailgating”. For 2015, affairs like The FADER Fort, Thrasher Death Match, and Mohawk’s House Of Vans are literally putting their balls to the wall, but we thought it’d be best to spotlight some of the more formidable shindigs that eliminate the indoor venue and come equipped with Texas barbecue. From Pitchfork to Tumblr IRL, these are the 20 Best Day Parties at SXSW 2015.
