How did SXSW Sydney really go? Here’s what the attendees had to say

The inaugural South by Southwest Sydney has finally wrapped up.
The music, film and tech fest came to Sydney for the first time last week. It was the first time SXSW has run outside of Texas, and the NSW government attracted the event by offering a reported $12m in funding.
Centred on Sydney’s Darling Harbour and the ICC conference centre, the gathering attracted hundreds, perhaps thousands of attendees.
Throughout the week, we asked ticket holders for their verdicts.
