SXSW is a completely different animal from any other festival you have ever experienced. It usually totals over 2000 bands playing shows in 5 days. Every nook, cranny, parking lot, venue, bar, grocery store and most everywhere else around downtown austin will have bands play all day from Tuesday-Saturday. There are official sxsw shows and unofficial shows. You will not make it into every show you want to see. You will need backup plans and know which direction to head to achieve it. Many shows will be free, many will have free drinks. Many will be badge wristband or invite only, many it won't matter. You will be walking more intensely than festivals since you are on the street. Having a bike is great, but 3 days on a bike will wear you out. Venues can be 20 blocks apart like going from anywhere to Auditorium shores or La Zona rosa. The festival also occurs during spring break in Austin. Those people are out and about also and are aware of free drinks. It's like walking around in a giant commercial, free drinks and shows will always be sponsored by someone.
The fun of sxsw is that you don't really know what you will end up seeing. You usually can find something going on as you're walking down the street. I try and go every year, it's too close not to. I've had my bike stolen and lost my id, it's just part of the adventure.
If you have friends to stay with in austin, that's the best bet. Otherwise look into sleeping arrangements soon, downtown gets packed quickly.

I have never bought a badge and usually spend less than $200 on the entire weekend. If you want to go all out, then you can get a badge, but it's not necessary. A wristband is a good option and about $130 I think, but I have never needed one either. A lot of shows will be badge and wristband only especially the night showcases where capacity is an issue. There will be plenty of free shows and some that cost money. I think Andrew Bird and Alabama Shakes was $30, but i decided to see Kasabian for free. I only paid for two shows this year. The showcase with Sarah Jaffe and a show with Trust. I think they were $20 and $10.
But yeah, the badge is kind of the all access pass, but you still won't make it into every show. I would say the hardest to get into shows this year were probably Fiona Apple playing at the church or Jack White playing off of sixth street. Some of the shows are outdoors and you can hangout outside and listen to it though. I have done that at Stubb's a few times, and a bunch of people did it for Jack White.
SXSW can be very chaotic and plans change at a moment's notice. If money was not an issue I would get a badge, but I have a great time making my own adventure on a budget. Most of the money I spent this year was at food trucks.
The only person I know in Texas (my cousin and her husband) are out in College Station. So, I've got nothing on that front. Holy hell hotels are pricey, except the roach and bedbug spots.
I wasn't planning on getting a badge, way too much $$$ for my budget. I know I can't see any big names, but with so much going on I don't mind. I just hear there's tons of bands that week, go find something worthwhile instead.
So there was a second list of artist/band additions a few weeks ago.
Holy hell it's long.

It's a lot to go through at once and I'd love to hear some recommendations from anyone who has taken the time to do it.
Out of what you listed, this would be what I would do (must see's in bold): Akron/Family, Allah-Las, Andy Stott, Blaudzun, Bonobo,Butch Walker, Carrie Rodriguez,Clear Soul Forces, Cory Chisel and The Wandering Sons, Dawes, Deadstring Brothers, DIIV, Divine Fits, ESG, Flume, Follakzoid, Foxygen, Heartless Bastards, The Holydruq Couple, Jason Isbell, Jenny Owen Youngs, Jim James, John Hiatt, John McCauley (of Deer Tick) & Friends, Jon Langford & Skull Orchard, Killer Mike, King Tuff, Local Natives, Lord Huron, Mac DeMarco, Metz, Mount Moriah, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Omar Souleyman, Phosphorescent, Pissed Jeans, Pokey LaFarge, Red Baraat, Rhye, Richard Thompson,Ryan Bingham, Samantha Crain, Sarah Jaffe, Shonna Tucker, Steve Earle, Surfer Blood, T Bird and the Breaks, Talib Kweli, Thee Oh Sees, Toro Y Moi, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Vampire Weekend, Vintage Trouble, Waco Brothers, Youth Lagoon, The Zombies
I highly recommend setting up a seperate email for sxsw RSVP's.
Also, the ultimate free drink party is Fader Fort and last year the RSVP was on March 7th. It is a very small window and closes quickly and you need to get a wristband early because they will run out by Saturday. Best bet to find out is on twitter. Purevolume is second on necessary rsvp.

considering heading to austin to this since its the same weekend and spring break. realistically how many of these bands will i be able to see for free/pay for at the door or is the 130 wrist band the best option. i cant afford the badge.
been going to SXSW since 2007........this will be my 7th.
2 things you want to do :
1. Buy the wristband( for the night/8pm-2am) cause it gives you more freedom to go from bar to bar to see bands rather than paying cover for each bar you try to hit, risk not getting in, or getting stuck in one bar all night(unless that is your plan at night.....find which of your favorite bands close the bar w their 1am show, get their by 8pm, and hang their all night.....stay in one bar each night for the 5 nights($20 2 get in each bar/$100 total)........but I would buy the wristband. I ALWAYS do.
2. start roaming the austin websites for DAY PARTIES!!!!!!! They r FREE but require RSVP. This is what everyone goes for. These parties are totally free, and some have free beer and food, and ALL the bands that play at night. Its just a matter of keeping your eyes out, get suggested sites, and RSVPing to the parties you want. Some have long lines. But RSVP, and you will get in. You wont believe who plays for free in the daytime.
