Last month, the music industry’s eyes were firmly set on Austin, Texas for the latest instalment of South by South West Festival (SXSW). With some of the world’s biggest bands being underpinned by some of the planet’s latest sensations, Austin was the place to be for one full week of new discoveries and old recollections. Photographer Haley Plotkin hung out in Austin for the duration, and you can check out the first part of her photo report below.
