Buy Your SXSW Badge Sept 17 for 35% Off!

The Forrest Four-Cast: September 13, 2018

Thursday, September 13 is the final day to save $500 on badge prices for SXSW 2019. Registration rates increase at 11:59 pm Pacific Time.

If you buy today, you’ll also still have lots of great options on convenient, downtown hotel rooms. But these options are quickly decreasing as more and more of the lodging possibilities are beginning to sell out for next year’s edition of March Magic.

Recently announced speakers for SXSW 2019 include Jason Blum (two-time Academy Award-nominated producer), Susan Fowler (Technology Editor of the New York Times Opinion section), Bjarke Ingels (BIG / Bjarke Ingels Group), Shirley Manson (Garbage), Lauren Mayberry (Chvrches), Marti Noxon (writer, producer, and director), Eli Pariser (Upworthy), Michael Pollan (author of “How to Change Your Mind”), Douglas Rushkoff (media theorist, author, and documentarian), Kevin Systrom (Instagram), Amy Webb (Future Today Institute), plus many others.

More speakers and more content will be revealed in early October. As always, stay tuned to the SXSW website for frequent updates on the 2019 event.
