If selected to showcase, foreign, non-U.S. acts will automatically receive SXSW artist wristbands as a benefit for performing. Artist wristbands grant free access to other official SXSW showcases, parties, conference programming, artist specific activations and more (unless otherwise noted). Domestic, US acts can choose to receive a small financial compensation in lieu of the artist wristbands (some exceptions may apply). For those who qualify to choose, only one selection may be made as no combinations of benefits are permitted. Some acts may perform on more than one official showcase however all acts will only be benefited once regardless of multiple performances.
ARTIST wristbands are for band members ONLY. Each performing artist has an option to purchase two discounted general SXSW MUSIC FESTIVAL wristbands for working crew members.
