Presenting the 2018 SXSW Schedule! Whether you are registered to attend SXSW or not, you can browse the continuously updated list of SXSW events and build your personal schedule online. Read the following for more information to get started.
How to Sign In
Simply click the Sign In text in the upper right-hand corner of the schedule and log in using the same username and password combination you use to log into your SXSW Account. Don’t have an account yet? No problem – simply create an account and then you are ready to log in and start building your personal SXSW schedule.
Note: If you have previously created an account for SXSW 2017, your log in information will be the same as last year. You will get a new “Link Code” to reactivate your SXSW Social account once you have registered to attend SXSW 2017. SXSW Social is a tool that allows SXSW registrants to search for and message other attendees, as well as book or modify your hotel reservation.
Once you are logged in you can add events to your schedule by clicking the star icon on any event page. Additionally, you can view all events in your schedule by clicking the My Favorites tab located on the homepage or in the upper, right-hand dropdown on the online schedule.
If you are having trouble accessing your account, click Reset Password at the bottom of the Sign In window. Simply enter the email address you used to register for your SXSW Account into the Forgot Your Password? box and a password reset email will be sent to your email account.
New for this year, while in the online schedule you have the ability to “link” and “unlink your badge” from the schedule while signed in – this button is visible when logged in on either side of your screen. The badge link and unlink functions will still be available in social.sxsw.com.
How To Find Events
This year’s online schedule provides you with a multitude of ways to filter events. From the SXSW Schedule homepage, browse programming by SXSW Conference Keynotes, Speakers, and Sessions, as well as SXSW Music Festival Artists, or “Everything” for the bold explorers. Stay tuned for SXSW Film Festival additions as screening selections are announced later in the season.
Within the schedule, you can click on the All Events dropdown to filter by Conference Tracks, Artists, Keynotes, Speakers, and Sessions. Click on the All Days dropdown to filter by each day of the SXSW event. You can also choose to browse events alphabetically by using the alphabet bar just under the dropdown filters.
Please note that time or venue information will not be made available until closer to the event.
Badge Access for Conference Tracks
As you filter by Conference Tracks, use the Badge Comparison Chart to compare primary and secondary access by badge type. Note our Convergence Tracks, which all badges receive primary access, when filtering through the online schedule. These Convergence sessions will appear under each Music, Film, or Interactive Event grouping. Take the Track Quiz – select the Tracks that most interest you to discover which badge fits your needs.
How to Add an Event
As you explore all our confirmed events for the 2018 season, curate your own SXSW adventure by building a personal schedule. Add an event to your schedule by clicking the star next to the event’s name. An event that has already been added to your schedule will be denoted by a purple star. Additionally, you can view all events in your schedule by clicking the My Favorites tab located on the homepage or in the upper, right-hand dropdown on the online schedule.
We’ve launched the online schedule earlier than ever this year, meaning that events do not yet have time or venue assigned to them yet. The schedule will be continuously updated as more events are confirmed and specific information becomes available later in the season. Feel free to add events of interest to your schedule now and as the details become available, your personal schedule will be automatically updated.
