Austin is a great town and the festival staff are incredibly helpful and hospitable. The main issue is that the fest takes place during the busiest week of the year in Austin, when South by Southwest Music and Interactive conferences are going on. This makes accommodations expensive and the city less laid back than usual. It can also seriously distract you if you have any interest in the other events. James Around 6 years ago
