Who Can Volunteer?

Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age, or older.
* No special experience is necessary and there is a volunteer role for everyone!

How Do I Sign Up to Volunteer?

Returning volunteers will receive an email with sign up instructions in early January. Keep an eye on your email! If you need to update your email address, please contact SXSW Volunteer Headquarters at

New volunteers should attend one of the SXSW Volunteer Calls to create a record, select a crew, and create a schedule with volunteer managers.

After the SXSW Volunteer Calls have passed, online sign up will be available to both new and returning volunteers. However, for the best selection of crews and hours, it is important to sign up at your earliest opportunity. Don’t delay!

If you have questions about volunteering for SXSW or SXSW EDU, please email Volunteer Headquarters at for assistance. See you soon!

*Some crews have additional age requirements due to venue policy.
