Foursquare in a blog post hints at their plan for the SXSW 2011 event. The post entitled "OMFG!" reads:

SXSW IS LESS THAN THREE WEEKS AWAY! NEW APP + NEW BADGES + PARTIES + CONCERT + MOAR FOURSQUARE. DETAILS COMING. OKTHXBAI.

Translation: There will be a new version of their app. There will be more badges to earn at the event. There will be a party (or maybe more than one?). And that party will likely feature a high-profile concert of some sort. And there will more that we'll learn about shortly.

"It was two years ago at the same event that Foursquare (and rival Gowalla) actually launched for the first time. And last year, the two fought to the death during the event for location-based supremacy. While the outcome wasn't so clear at the time (helped by the fact that Gowalla is Austin-based), Foursquare now has far more users than Gowalla. And so we probably shouldn't expect the same time of war this year," said TC.
