    a wrist band will pretty much guarantee access to any show that you want..but it isnt really necessary. However getting a badge and wrist band will get you into the the film screening and such. There are usually alot of musicians and celebrities that attend all that stuff.

    it's dope..there are multiple bands playing all downtown..alot of free shows..but you get there before 5pm to get in free cuz then there is a cover charge for the really good bands. Most bands will play more then once, there are many musicians who do solo acts, new bands that play their first show, reunions, secret shows, you just gotta be on the look out and plan plan plan what it is you wanna see. Or, you can always just hit up the bars that have alot of lesser name bands, dj's and musicians.

    Thanks for much for the additional info, Pint O'Salsa. I drove down for FFF and I'm not doing that again. I took cabs while I was down there (half were free because I was with other people), so I'll care on the tradition when I come back down.

    Definitely gonna look up and bookmark some sites. My friend just bought a badge, but I don't think I'm willing to spend $6-700 if I can get free shit somehow, someway.

    I second everyone hear. I might come off as entitled and bitchy in this next sentence but I promise I'm not. Since I have to deal with all of the extra traffic, having to wait in crazy long lines all over my fav places to eat and over priced drinks because of the out of towners I flat out refuse to pay for any show and most food/ drinks that week too. It's all about how much time you have to invest. No wristband or badge the lines will be longer but you'll have a ton of extra cash to pick and choose what you want to see and where. Like everyone else said just keep up on fb, twitter, do512 and a handful of others to check out what's free when. Last year I spent maybe $100 for a week! Most of that went to cabs b/c my ride didn't pick me up but that's another story. I got at least one free meal a day and free drinks like crazy! Booze company's love giving you free booze during sxsw. However, i think they're trying to curb how much free stuff is going to happen this year due to the riot at DFA1979 and a handful of other incidents. Never mind that they were all at badge only/ paid shows. Anyways, yeah it's easy enough to watch free shit. They have big bands play for free at audi shores every night.

    Great minds! I booked a place to stay for SXSW on Monday. I'm debating about the wristbands/badges right now because of all the free shows I've heard about that go down.

    i went this year without a wristband and saw a bunch of cool bands. during the day (11:00 am - 5:00 pm), there are a ton of free shows, and i didn't have a problem waiting in line at all. a lot of the "cooler" shows started after 6, and that's when you had to drop down some cash, but i was able to get my fill and then left and avoided the mobs in the evening. but i was also a little less adventurous, since my baby was a few weeks old at the time and i needed to get back home to help out my wife.

    Pretty much you just mob into the shit and bars you wanna go see. A lot times when you miss an official showcase that artist will play at least on secret show too. You just have to keep you ears out. Check out a lot of the anti- sxsw shows to. I don't think a wristband or a badge is necccessary because you really just have to find out where it is that the bands you wanna see are playing and talk to people to find out where they are going to party. Its like a big fuggin party where everyone gets too wasted to care. I met Bill Murray and The Gza one year and Shangri -La.

    deffinetly worth checking out lots of free shows and party venues. wrist bands are nice but theres more than enough things to do with out one. ceck out do512 and sxsw twitter just to name a few to find all the good free stuff ( music, food, drinks) there is to do. sx can be lots of fun if you do your reaserch right.

    Theres always a ton of free shows, but of course the wristbands/badges whatever gets you in to official sxsw showcases. Last year was crazy packed everywhere. if there's a particular band you want to watch at a free show i suggest you get there super early. Oh also FFF fest does MWTX, a free mini fest during the last weekend of sxsw.
