These artists might hate SXSW, but they're still playing at the festivalby Reed Dunlea and Jason Zucker

WATCH  | Artists performing at the Don Giovanni showcase at SXSW had a lot to say about what the festival could do to improve.

SXSW, the annual culture conference in Austin, Texas, was marred in controversy  when news broke that their artist contract stated that international musicians could be reported to immigration authorities if they played unofficial shows during the festival. Don Giovanni Records and many bands associated with the label took the forefront of pressing SXSW to drop the clause from their contract. Now that the artists have made it down to Austin for the fest, we wanted to ask them their other criticisms of SXSW.
