Marc Benioff, Ashton Kutcher, Elon Musk, and Snoop Dogg walked into a bar.

And the night only got crazier from there.

Sound Ventures, a tech investment firm founded by actor Kutcher and talent manager Guy Oseary, held one of the most exclusive and lavish parties at the South by Southwest film festival and tech conference on Saturday night. Powerful forces from Hollywood and Silicon Valley came together for the event — dubbed “The Party” — set on a rooftop bar in Austin, Texas.

“The Party” was the event that everyone was clamoring to get into at SXSW this year.

Guests had to arrive during certain hours at the hotel to pick up a wristband, as well.
