There are two big music-related events in my city (Ausitn, Texas) -- South By Southwest (SXSW), which is going on right now, and the Austin City Limits Festival which takes place in the fall. From here it seems like they are super famous and known world-wide. Is that true? Have you ever gone to one of these? Have you ever heard of either of them, and if so, what have you heard?
I also am a regular at another music festival that seems pretty famous among singer-songwriter fans. It's called the Kerrville Folk Festival. Have you ever gone to it or heard of it? If you've heard of it, what have you heard?
