+ - SXSW is unfair to Artists->

Submitted by

nickull writes "SXSW is a popular conference amongst many in the tech culture. While the mix of technology, art, film and music fun all seems fine on the surface, a closer look reveals how SXSW actively takes money from musicians via SonicBids, charging them to apply to play at the festival in an un-transparent lottery. This practice needs to be exposed and discussed to ensure fair trade extends to musicians at technology events."
