We at SlamXHype didn’t make it down to this year’s SXSW music, film, tech and comedy festival. At first we were pretty upset that we missed all the action in order to stay up in New York and work, but as reports have come back from the event, we’re realizing that it’s actually a blessing in disguise.

Don’t get us wrong, we’re pissed we didn’t get to see Kanye and Jay Z reviving The Throne, Pusha T throwing it down at the Def Jam 30th Anniversary Party, or Damon Albarn enlisting De La Soul, Snoop Dogg, Del The Funky Homosapien and more to help him perform a medley of Gorillaz songs at the Fader Fort.

But for the most part, this year’s SXSW sounds like a nightmare that we’re glad we missed. Click through the gallery above to see the 8 moments that we’re happiest to have not been present for.
