Digiday is at SXSW giving you the latest industry news out of the festival at Austin, Texas. More from the series →

The party has begun: Brands, agencies, social stars, pet influencers, filmmakers, musicians, the former Vice President of the United States and Warren G are flocking to South by Southwest this week to talk about technology and creativity, and to get as much free stuff as possible.

As a courtesy, Digiday cuts through the clutter and brings you our exclusive and definitive list of what’s in and what’s out for SXSW this year. (Here is last year’s guide for your reference. Goodbye, Kanye West and Grumpy Cat. Hello Joe Biden.)
