Stalker Chevrolet Announces Plans for SXSW Festival

The SXSW Festival kicks off March 8 and will engage the creative and professional minds of attendees interested in technology, music, and film. Chevrolet is the Official Ride of the Festivals.

Online PR News – 20-March-2013 – Des Moines, IA – The South by Southwest® Conferences and Festivals will take place from March 8 to March 17, 2013. Bright minds interested in engaging their professionalism and creativity in areas such as technology, film, and music will attend the event in Austin, Texas. According to Stalker Chevrolet, Chevy is the Official Ride of the Festivals as a Super Sponsor for the fourth year in a row.

Chevy will be hosting a lot of events and creating a lot of locations for the events. Catch a Chevy is a program that will allow registrants of SXSW to navigate the streets of Austin for free in a Chevy taxi—either a 2013 Chevrolet Cruze Eco or Malibu. Fifty of these “taxis” will be available to registrants from 8:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. March 8 through March 13, and again from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. from March 14 through March 16. Drive a Chevy, on the other hand, allows registrants to get behind the wheel of a Chevy vehicle themselves, including the Camaro, Corvette, Equinox, Sonic, Spark, and Volt, on a special test track near the entrance of the Austin Convention Center at designated time slots.

The Find New Roads Lounge will allow registrants a chance to recharge their mobile devices inside the Austin Convention Center. It’s also a place of interactive social media. Chevy will also be offering a Chevrolet Crossroads Lounge, located at 6th Street and San Jacinto during the Music festival. This lounge will allow fans to relax during the hectic days. In addition, registrants can play DJ by using the Sonic’s MyLink infotainment system.

Staying Social allows registrants to get VIP upgrades by registering and scanning at all the Chevy displays around Austin, including access to private events or special seating at Auditorium Shores. The Auditorium Shores Experience is the music core of the whole entire festival. While there, fans can take their pictures with the all-new Camaro.

In addition, Chevy will feature a Tweethouse & Technology panel that will discuss new technologies and the online world. The event will be hosted on March 9 from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Mellow Johnny’s Bike Shop. Brian Solis will be a special panelist, and Mark Ballas will be giving a musical performance. Registrants must RSVP in advance.

Chevrolet has these and several other tricks up its sleeve. For more information, fans can visit Stalker Chevrolet in Creston, Iowa, near Des Moines, or visit online at
