SXSW Holiday Hits

Before we dip into the egg nog (and queso) and let visions of sugar plums dance in our heads for the holidays (and by sugar plums, we mean tacos), take a stroll through the latest programming announcements, SX Holiday Hits playlist, and special registration rates for SXSW 2023 in Austin, TX from March 10-19.

Newly Announced

Deep in the heart of SXSW, there is a lot to discover from the world's of tech, film, music, and beyond across our 2023 slate of programming for the Conference and Festivals.

Starting on the Conference side of new programming, the first Keynote speaker Patagonia CEO Ryan Gellert was announced along with a growing lineup of stellar Featured Speakers from the worlds of tech, music, education, business, film, government, science, and beyond. Dive further into hundreds of community-sourced sessions across 25 programming tracks with more Keynotes and additions to all Conference formats on the way, including RSVPs for one-on-one Mentor Sessions.

Flipping the tape over to the Music Festival, we have over 500 Showcasing Artists ready to hit the stage in March. Take a spin through the first and second showcase announcements with round three queued up to play in January. Listen to, watch, and build your must-see list of bands from A-Z.

The Film & TV Festival will also roll out the announcement red carpet in the new year. While you await the 2023 lineup reveal, expand your watchlist and cozy up to Film & TV alumni releases over the holidays.

Coming Soon: After we sing a few bubbly bars of Auld Lang Syne (bonus points if you actually know all the words) – 2023 kicks off with more SXSW event updates! Stay tuned for big announcements coming this January including Conference Keynotes and Featured Speakers, a third round of Music Festival showcases, Mentor Sessions, SXSW Pitch finalists, and (you guessed it) more.
