2017 Badge Type Changes


SXSW is expanding access for all registrants at SXSW 2017. We’re streamlining the conference into one unified event with 24 tracks of programming and offering more opportunities for networking, learning, and discovery than ever before.   

Music Festival showcases will start on Monday, March 13 while the Film Festival maintains its nine day footprint starting on Friday, March 10.

The Platinum badge still remains your best bet with primary access to all of SXSW at a lower price than last year, the Interactive, Film, and Music badges will now include expanded access to more of the SXSW Conference & Festivals experience. Attendees will still receive primary entry to programming associated with their badge type, but can now enjoy secondary access to most other SXSW events.

For more information, check out our video specifying the changes, download the SXSWeek Timeline, and look at our Badge Comparison Chart below for further details on access.
