2018 Badge Access

 

Once again, SXSW is offering expanded access to events for all registrants. With one unified conference that spans 24 tracks of programming plus our SXSW Eco curated Cities Summit, we’ll be offering more opportunities for networking, learning, and discovery than ever before.   

Music Festival showcases will start on Monday, March 12 while the Film Festival maintains its nine day footprint starting on Friday, March 9.

The Platinum badge remains your best bet with primary access to all of SXSW while attendees will still receive primary entry to programming associated with their badge type, in addition to enjoying secondary access to most other SXSW events. All SXSW badgeholders also receive complimentary access to SXSW Gaming.
