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…

Don’t forget your permits for SXSW events!

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

Watch out for the licence changes for "Austin Sound Permits" this year. Previously, you could apple for a multi-day sound permit just fourteen days before an event as to take place. That limit has been increased, and you need to apply twenty eight days in advance.

Which means that any permits for SXSW, which starts on Friday 9th March 2012, will need to be with the City of Austin’s planning department by Wednesday February 8th. You can submit permits online at www.austintexas.gov/soundpermit.
