We look forward to welcoming everyone to Austin next March. The safety of our SXSW community continues to be a top priority. As we did in 2022, we will work with local health authorities to plan for on-site precautions and mitigations applicable or necessary for SXSW 2023 (including relating to COVID-19 and associated variants) and will keep you informed throughout the season.
The Platinum Badge is your key to everything SXSW has to offer — opening up the breadth and depth of our groundbreaking conference sessions, iconic festivals, unparalleled networking opportunities, access to SXSW’s online programming, and more.
Your Platinum Badge grants primary access to all official SXSW Conference & Festivals events.
