This year's SXSW Festival in Austin will feature over 50 bands, solo acts, and DJs from Colorado. While in a perfect world, you'd be able to see each and every fantastic act playing in Texas next week, the reality is that festivalgoers need to make some tough decisions about who to see when. 

The whole process can be pretty overwhelming, but all of us at OpenAir are here to help: below you'll find a list of the many Colorado acts playing at SXSW, along with set times, locations, and showcases (all when applicable). The list is organized chronologically by day. 

One of the surefire ways to get a healthy dose of Colorado music is by attending the Colorado Music Party, brought to you by OpenAir, Reverb, and Spokesbuzz! The two-day event boasts 30 bands on two stages on Thursday, March 13 and Friday, March 14. Showcase RSVP, lineup details, set times and more information about the bands is available via www.coloradomusicparty.com/lineup.

Take a look and familiarize yourself with the wide selection of excellent SXSW acts that call Colorado home. We hope to see you down in Austin!

(note: This list is by no means comprehensive, and all set times are subject to change. Musicians, if you see something you'd like changed or added, please send us a message and let us know!)
