10 reasons to get up early and to go Governor's Ball before Noon (this means you, Loren).

Kicking off on Friday, this year’s Governor’s Ball lineup is as stacked as a fluoro-tube-top-wearing rave Jersey girl, and that includes the wee little hot pants, because it’s stacked at the bottom as well. It’s not just about the biggies, though Outkast, Vampire Weekend and Skrillex are certainly the drawcards over here (see my picks in the article five of the acts you can't miss). Here’s the top ten reasons I’ll be getting up early to arrive for the midday sets – and dragging my friends accordingly, to whom I have dedicated this very handy post.

Pandora brings SXSW to Australia and New Zealand

Pandora internet radio will be returning to SXSW for its third annual Pandora Discovery Den party, set to happen from March 12 – 15. And to make things even better, they will be broadcasting every performance live to Australia + New Zealand fans via a multi-platform audio stream.

With over 35 acts set to take the stage over a huge 4 days, this is one event not to be missed. The lineup includes Australia’s own Boy and Bear, Brooklyn's Haerts, newcomers MAGIC! + heaps more.
