Sept 17 Deadline For $500 Badge Discount

The Forrest Four-Cast: September 9, 2018

While March Magic 2019 is still six months away, this is a big big big week for all things South by Southwest.

On Monday, September 10, the first announcement of Keynotes and Featured Speakers for next spring will occur via the SXSW website. This announcement will be the first of many content releases that shape the look and feel of the March 8–16 event.

Also, Thursday, September 13 is the final day to take advantage of early-bird badge discounts for next spring. Save $500 as compared to the walkup price if you buy your Interactive, Film, Music or Platinum badge before rates go up at 11:59 pm Pacific Time.

After you register, book your lodging via SXSW Housing and Travel.

There are still plenty of primo downtown rooms available, particularly during the second half of SXSWeek (when the new “Blockchain & Cryptocurrency” and “Cannabusiness” tracks occur).
