SXSW 2018 | 2018 season launches on Monday, June 26

Next Monday we celebrate our 2018 Season Launch with the opening of PanelPicker, Film Festival Submissions, Music Festival Showcase Applications, and several of our awards including the SXSW Community Service AwardsInteractive Innovation AwardsAccelerator Pitch Event, and the David Carr Prize.

One of the grooviest elements of our event over the past few years has been the many art installations we’ve featured. From the Impossible Wall Project to Simon Heijdens’ Silent Room and this year’s Optic Obscura, the SXSW Art Program has played host to a variety of feasts for the eyes and soul. The program also opens for proposals on June 26.

Please do share your creativity and take advantage of one of our many ways to participate at SXSW. 

We are working diligently to prepare for the 2018 event. Your feedback makes a difference and we’re taking steps to address changes that will continue to make the event a positive, inclusive experience. 

And lastly, we’ve got the ever-interesting June issue of SXSWorld out for your perusal. If you’re looking for some cool bands you might have missed at the fest, have a gander at our Music Bloggers Guide.
