Austin is full, no more party space being given out

Saturday, February 8th, 2014

Here’s hoping that you’ve got your corporate party space booked for SXSW, because Austin City Council aren’t giving out any more permits. If you’ve left it too late (we’re looking at you, Microsoft), then it’s time to hustle and trade.

That doesn’t mean it’s going to be quiet in Austin. Via My Fox Austin, this year submitted permits for temporary music venues are up 9 (97 in 2013 to 106 in 2014), temporary use permits are also up 9 (to 107), and temporary change of use permits shoot up 26 (from 45 to 71).

There’s probably an out-sized Doritos machine in there as well…

The voting is closed. For sure. Really. They mean it this time.

The Panel Picker is now a read only environment, hope you nudged up your friends and the interesting looking panels, because it’s all over. At least it is for you. The scoring from the Panel Picker makes up 30%, that’s joined by the 30% from the advisory board, and now the SXSW staff themselves add in their 40%. Which, if you’re smart and know your arithmetic, means the could still push through a number of panels, but some could be well clear of a 50%+1 threshold already.
