SXSW Recap + Survey

SXSW was a whirlwind for Sparkplug! We were overwhelmed by how many artists, companies, brands, and showcases used Sparkplug and our amazing community of local Austin gear owners to backline their events.

In a recap survey of members that used Sparkplug over SXSW, we learned:

  • 9 out of 10 owners would rather rent out their gear with Sparkplug vs. on their own
  • 100% feel safe using Sparkplug
  • 100% would recommend Sparkplug

And here are some of the things they had to say about the experience:

“I had the gear I needed and at my earliest convenience and not breaking the label's budget for tour support. It was excellent.”

“Sparkplug reaches potential customers that I would otherwise not have access to.”


“Sparkplug is an amazing company to work with and we will continue to use them as well as spread the good word as much as possible!”
