SXSW is bringing music, movies and plenty of hipsters to Austin, Texas. Since the festival is so long and spreads across so many venues throughout the city, attending can be a pretty daunting and intimidating — but ultimately rewarding — task for music lovers.

Between the crowds, the commute and the concert lineups, deciding what to do when can be a little tough, and if you don’t have all the gear that you need, it can be even tougher. We’ve rounded up the ultimate supplies to get you through your SXSW stint without missing a beat — and with your sanity in tact.

With a lineup of acts ranging from Macklemore, Tom Odell, Kendrick Lamar, Paramore, Sky Ferreira, Deadmau5 and more, you don’t want to be frazzled looking for a venue or necessity and risk missing your favorites! So, check out our 2013 SXSW Survival Guide for a comprehensive list of must-have items for your excursion around Austin.
