SXSW was founded in 1987, if you can believe it. Of course, the festival has evolved dramatically since then, morphing from a small, local musical festival into an international event that includes a film festival and interactive conference session.

A lot has occurred in SXSW's 29-year lifespan. For example, did you know the world's largest footed-pajama party was held at the festival in 2012? (You're welcome.)

More noteworthy events have also taken place in Austin, including the launch and/or adoption of some incredibly influential tech companies, including Twitter (in 2007) and Foursquare (in 2009).
