SXSW 2016 was full of exciting firsts for She Shreds, spanning from our official panel on Representation of Women in Media to the more than 50 bands that graced the stages at our events throughout the week.

During what is one of the biggest corporate festivals in the world—you literally couldn’t take one step without getting inundated with “SXSW exclusive” offers and without guaranteed entry, waits to see bands could take up to two hours—we managed to build an oasis that felt more like a family reunion than big business.  Check out a day-by-day photo recap in the next few days starting with day one at Hotel Vegas. Stay tuned for the full panel discussion coming soon to She Shreds Radio.
