Wilson Center Guitar Festival
A big howdy from Austin, Texas and SXSW 2014. And, WOW. Just, WOW. With 78,000+ confirmed registrants and 285,000+ folks rumored to have come into Austin for South by Southwest 2014, it’s easy to see how South By (its nickname) has become the quintessential place to be for rockers, musicians, artists, actors, techies, coders, lap-top wizards, educators, leaders, financiers, filmmakers, and fans—to name but a few invested parties. Now in its 27th year of inception, #SXSW has become a global phenomena; unique in its live-music lineup and audacious in combining hot-Hollywood talent with sophisticated, edgy, artistic, up-and-comers, alongside the indie-elite and freshly-plucked unknowns in the fields of music (#sxswmusic), film (#sxswfilm), interactive (#sxswi), education (#sxswedu), and eco-environmental (#sxsweco)—SXSW has made it. They’ve got street-cred, and they’re officially all grown up. SXSW 2014 was no exception to just how wide their belt buckles have become. Can anyone say, “More barbecue?”
South By Southwest is the most anticipated music and entertainment festivals, conference and conventions in the United States. It is where many bands always want to play and where some of the greatest bands first made their names. For 2014, the line-up of bands includes many that have guitarists that are girls. What better way for Guitar Girl Magazine to celebrate than with a list of some of the best guitar girl performers at SXSW!
