@IGIF Who made that poster because that is fucking gorgeous?


Candice February 18, 2011 at 6:25 pm

Dude seriously, that is a phenomenal poster. Who designed it??


Connor February 19, 2011 at 9:22 pm

thanks for the flattery :) I made the poster this time around, whereas last year’s Floating Fest SXSW poster was designed by http://web.mac.com/dvagallery/Netherland_Art/Home.html

Hopefully the other parties aren’t 21+!


Connor February 22, 2011 at 6:06 pm

sorry Belinda! We’ll have many more floating fests to come and sooner or later you’ll be 21, we’ll throw 18+ events, or we’ll meet in the middle :)

So, there really isn’t a way us 18 year olds can get in? :(
me and my girlfriend would have loved to be there.
The bars wont allow it? i mean it is day time for the most part?

would have loved to hang out and watch wise blood.

We’re going to discuss this with Lovejoy’s to see if we can set up a stamp system or something, but unfortunately as it stands it’s 21+ and traditionally Lovejoy’s events are all that way. I’ll update the site if we have any good news :)
