When you think of SXSW, you think of the parties, the shows, the drinks, and the FUN! And the best way to experience everything SXSW has to offer is to have that magical official badge. But how do you get a badge on a budget?! VOLUNTEER for SXSW. I know what you’re thinking. “I don’t have enough time to volunteer! So many hours! It’s too much work!” But no worries… there are different levels of time commitment, and the best part is you’ll get to see the inner workings of this amazing conference/festival!
Make your schedule work and sign up to volunteer. You work some (mostly easy) shifts, you get a badge. A badge most people pay WELL over $1800 for. It’s almost too good to be true! There are plenty of crews who need volunteers, so head on over to https://volunteer.sxsw.com/register/ to learn more.
There is no longer a “Volunteer Call” where you must sign up for shifts in person. All shift sign-up is now done online, and is currently OPEN!
You’ll get into SO many parties, lounges, panels, films, shows, etc. that you wouldn’t have if you didn’t have that badge. RSVPing can only get you so far… so help out, get a badge, and have the best SXSW ever!
Much to the seasoned Austin spring festival-goer’s delight…the FADER Fort is back for SXSW 2019!
The fort will return to it’s 2018 digs, at 1501 E. 7th St, which last year boasted a lush green lawn, plenty of stage-viewing space, and fun activities for attendees.
This always anticipated, invite-only event will showcase artists CHARLY BLISS, LIL GOTIT, MEGAN THEE STALLION, OMAR APOLLO… plus many more acts to be announced!
The FADER FORT welcomes Intrinsic Wines and Spotify as new sponsors. Spotify Premium members will get some exclusive access and perks… so stay tuned for those details! FADER FORT is happening March 13-15…so stay tuned for updates!
Although the space has moved a bit farther east to 1501 E. 7th St, it is once again a more intimate, invite-only event. But last year, small space did NOT mean smaller acts, as Lizzo, Cardi B, and Bishop Briggs rocked the stage.
