My first time staying after SXSW Interactive for the music festival that follows afterwards allowed me the opportunity to also check out Flatstock, a trade show of vendors selling music posters of all design and musical genres.
As a designer, I found Flatstock to be one of the most inspiring events of the entire SXSW festival. I highly recommend Flatstock if you make it to SXSW next year, but make sure you budget for it!
Along with being inspirational, Flatstock was also the most draining on my personal finances. I left with several posters, but a lighter wallet.
