Once a year, Austin, TX transforms into the music capital of the world during the annual SXSW Music Festival. This year was no exception, as fans in attendance were able to experience countless live performances from sunrise to sunset each day, with numerous showcases and lively parties throughout the city. Amidst all of the amazing showcases, ridiculous parties and crowded streets, iHipHop was on-hand to capture all of the weeks’ events. For your viewing pleasure we have compiled a recap of SXSW 2013 from behind our lens. All photos by Lucas Alvarado / Far Fetched Future.
