The Artist Central programming schedule for SXSW 2016 is now live - browse the Artist How-To sessions today.

The SXSW Music Conference isn't just for behind-the-scenes industry figures – there's tons of great workshops and sessions for working musicians.

Our Artist Central room, located near the Artist Lounge on the 4th floor of the Austin Convention Center, features a track of sessions designed to further your career, grow your fan base, and even improve your live and studio experiences. Learn how to compose music for ads, TV and film, book a profitable tour, rule the studio, or design your online presence, all from industry pros and working musicians.

To supplement Artist Central programming and the Artist How-To Track, we've created a series of Cheat Sheets to help working musicians further navigate the conference. Download infographic schedules for Songwriting and Recording, Touring Artists, Unsigned & Independent Artists, and Finding New Revenue Streams.
