South by Southwest Registrations

If you are planning to attend South by Southwest (SXSW) in 2005, the time to act is now! You can find out about the registration process at The registration rates do not, however, apply to bands who are accepted to perform at the conference.

Registration rates will increase as SXSW approaches. Currently a Music Badge is available for US$395, and a Platinum Badge (also covering the Film and Interactive parts of SXSW) is US$590. These rates apply until the 19th of November, at which time they will increase. Further price increases will occur on the 14th of January and 11th of February, and culminate in a walk-up rate of US$545 for the Music Badge and US$810 for the Platinum Badge.

In short, if you are thinking about going, the sooner you register the better!

Bands can apply online at The fee for online applications is US$20. All international applications must be completed no later than October 29th, although we encourage bands to apply as soon as possible. Good luck!
