The best concert posters have always captured both the essence of the music they promoted and the spirit of the time in which they were produced. Flatstock provides an ongoing series of opportunities to see fine poster art in person and to meet the artists who created it.
Flatstock is free and open to the public as well as all SXSW registrants.
Enjoy performances from some of our talented official Showcasing Artists. Open to the general public, Flatstock Stage is a perfect spot to unwind in between your poster perusing and check out up-and-coming acts at SXSW.
