Topics featured in the Music & Tech track include streaming, artist rights, artist payments, music marketing, touring, game industry integration, and new audio-centric technologies.

Each year, SXSW calls upon its creative global community to help identify innovative new ideas and the visionaries behind them. The majority of Conference sessions are sourced and voted on by the SX community from 2023 PanelPicker®, along with input from SXSW Staff and the PanelPicker Evaluator Committee.

Platinum and Music Badges receive primary access to sessions in this track. Stay tuned for Music & Tech track programming announcements throughout the season.
