South by Southwest announced the dates for next year’s festival today, March 10-19.

Applications for the SXSW Panel Picker, the community driven online submissions tool that drives some of the conference programming, will be open on June 28.  Registration for the conference and festival will open on August 1.

At this point, the festival has not broken down the conference dates by track, Music, Film and Interactive, leading at least one prominent Austinite to speculate the fest might move toward greater convergence of the three tracks in 2017.

We have reached out to SXSW for comment.
