Description

This newspaper clipping marks the growth of South by Southwest at its ten-year anniversary, referring to the festival as "the largest event of its kind in the United States." Despite growing to such a level, one of the founders of the festival claims that it "rarely makes money." Today, SXSW is largely profitable, demonstrating how much growth was still yet to come for the festival.
