SXSW will be taking place the week of March 10 in Austin, Texas. Beginning in 1987, the yearly festival, South by Southwest, has grown greatly. In last year alone, the interactive segment of the festival entertained 30,621 attendees. This high amount of tourists brings a large economic boost to the Austin economy and it created a financial impact of $190.3 million in the community just last year.
This particular festival is only open to those eighteen and up. The different badges available for purchased, SXSW Platinum, Gold, Film, Music, and Interactive badges, allow for different entries in the performances. Monday night’s show is available to all badge holders. However, all the proceeding nights’ shows will be restricted to just those with the Music and Platinum badges.
Tickets can be obtained by SXSW registrants, and those with wristbands on the day of the events. Distributed on a first come first serve basis, the wristbands will be available from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. These wristbands will be in Austin at the Long Center on 701 W. Riverside Drive. Guests with these bands have to be in line by 4:00 pm in order to view the live tapings. Remember, if the badges and wristbands sell out too quickly, the shows will always be shown the night of on ABC at 11:35pm ET/10:35pm PT.
