With Summer still in session (but school not too far behind), it’s time to get a good dose of festivals and outdoor activities while the day is young. Here are our top six can’t-miss Austin events for August 2017.
Summer vacation! As a kid, it meant no school, unlimited time to hang out with friends, trips to theme parks, and so on; as an adult, it can mean jetting away to an exotic island or country to get a taste of something completely different from home. Here at milk + honey, we think that summer vacation can also include exploring your own backyard. Inspired by the city, we’ve mapped out our ideal Austin Staycation guide. Just like our Houston Staycation roundup, this guide highlights which hotels, restaurants, activities should be on your to-do list.
From concerts to food trailers, here are our top seven can’t-miss Austin events for July 2017.
Lights, camera, runway! On May 19, 2017, SALON by milk + honey stylists, Amy, Morgan, and Meesh, along with salon apprentice, Peyton, participated in Austin Fashion Week. To prep for Friday evening’s runway show, the stylists met with the featured designers to create an exclusive hairstyle for the show. It had to be a look that would translate across multiple collections and aesthetics. Together, they chose soft, gorgeous curls — one part glamorous, one part low-maintenance — for the 19 models that would be walking the show. Working backstage is always filled with energy, fun, and inspiration, and this year was no different. Here are some of our favorite backstage snapshots from this year’s Austin Fashion Week.
For me, SXSW 2017 is all about the spectacular films that can’t be missed. As a movie fanatic, I’ve searched through the SXSW guide and have found some true gems. Let me know what you’re most looking forward to seeing.

There’s never a shortage of live music in Austin, but SXSW Music ups the ante tenfold. It’s sensory overload with a side of FOMO thrown into the mix — who to see and who to pass over with only so many hours in the day? With all this ear candy taking over most of downtown Austin, it begs the question: where to start? I’ve mapped out the shows I’m most excited about in the hopes that you too will glean some of your own concert-going inspiration.
Anamanaguchi DJ set
The self-proclaimed “boy band” out of New York has amassed an impressive cult following thanks to its addictive electronic meets J-pop beats. If you’re unfamiliar with their sound, press “play” on Pop It, a more recent favorite of mine that is bubblegum-dance perfection.
Playing Tuesday, March 15 and Thursday, March 17.
While it’s easy (and fun!) to get swept away in the excitement of SXSW, it’s just as easy to burn out before your final panel takes the stage. To help you maintain that bright-eyed, busy-tailed sensibility, we’ve culled some of our favorite express treatments for you — all quick enough to press the “refresh” button without missing your next meeting.
Every year, SXSW draws an international crowd ready to take part in the smorgasbord of incredible touring bands, film premieres, interactive panels that cater to the tech, music, film, and sports industry, incredible bands, and of course, the afterparty/networking scene. For me, there’s nothing more exciting than seeing a film premiere during SXSW. That’s why I’ve combed through all the upcoming debuts in the week ahead. Excitement, people. Let these picks guide you in your own SXSW viewing schedule. Don’t see your favorite on the list? Share yours in the comments section.
