Deep in the heart of Austin, SXSW is the premier destination for dreamers, innovators, storytellers, and global thought leaders. Each March, this diverse group of creatives across the tech, film, and music industries converge for 10 days of collaboration.
“We’re already hard at work on bringing SXSW 2023 to life, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome you to another groundbreaking installment of our event,” said Roland Swenson, CEO and Co-founder. “We look forward to welcoming the creative professionals who come here to share their art and expertise, and showcase their imaginative solutions for a better future.”
Join us for SXSW 2023 from March 10-19 in Austin, TX! The annual event features Conference sessions, Film & TV Festival screenings, Music Festival showcases, world-class Exhibitions, competitions, Awards ceremonies, and much more. Get ready for unexpected discoveries, vast networking and learning opportunities, inspiring programming, and a wonderland of tacos.

You'll also have secondary access to other tracks and events outside of your badge type for the opportunity to experience programming and connect with creatives across the many industries that SX serves. All registrants receive access to SXSW 2023's online programming.

We look forward to welcoming everyone to Austin next March. The safety of our SXSW community continues to be a top priority. As we did in 2022, we will work with local health authorities to plan for on-site precautions and mitigations applicable or necessary for SXSW 2023 (including relating to COVID-19 and associated variants) and will keep you informed throughout the season.
See you in March!
