If selected to showcase, foreign, non-U.S. acts will automatically receive SXSW Artist Wristbands as a benefit for performing (Artist Wristband details, here).
Domestic, U.S. 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 performing members ONLY. Each performing artist has an option to purchase two discounted general SXSW MUSIC FESTIVAL wristbands for working crew members.
