About Interactive Festival


The evening networking events that make up the SXSW Interactive Festival range from parties to award presentations — and almost everything in between. Don’t miss the Interactive Festival Opening Party which provides a great venue to make career-enhancing connections that will serve you far beyond SXSWeek.

The competitions and awards of the SXSW Interactive Festival honor some of the industry’s most important new innovators. Catch the winners at the Interactive Innovation Awards, SXSW Pitch (formerly Accelerator), SXSW Release It, and the Community Service Awards.

The networking opportunities continue at the Interactive Mix at Six and the Interactive Bash – complete with complimentary food, drinks, and special musical guests.
