SXSW Online 2021 has opened registration for next year’s event, which is scheduled to take place on March 16-20, 2021 virtually.  SXSW decided to move its programming to an online format for 2021 due to COVID-19 concerns. 

SXSW will be offering one pass that covers its entire online event that includes keynotes, conference sessions, music festival showcases, Film Festival screenings, world-class networking, and other unexpected discoveries expected by South By.

“It’s a new day for America and for the world. We have the opportunity to face challenges that affect us all, and we’re honored to bring you the conversations that will renew your hope in tomorrow. 

This year has been one like none of us have faced. At SXSW, the impact has been profound and has involved substantial changes in how we work, so it means a lot for us to have the chance to plan a 2021 digital event where we can share experiences and exchange ideas at this crucial time. 

We know these last months have been difficult for everyone, and we look forward to working together to find creative solutions for today and the future at SXSW Online 2021.”  

Roland Swenson, SXSW CEO & Co-Founder

South by Southwest (SXSW) is an annual event held in Austin, Texas that merges film, interactive media, music festivals, and conferences.  The conference is known to grow in scope and size each year.  SXSW Music is the largest music festival of its kind in the world as it hosts thousands of acts.  It has catapulted the careers of major music artists including The White Stripes, Amy Winehouse, and Kid Cudi.  The event was forced to cancel its 2020 edition for the first time since it began in 1987 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
