Does SXSW pay for showcase artist housing & travel?

SXSW Housing & Travel holds artist rooms in downtown and budget friendly hotels outside of downtown at our discounted SXSW rate, but we do not pay for artist hotels. A credit card is required to book a hotel with SXSW Housing & Travel.

To book your band’s housing with SXSW Housing & Travel sign-in to your Artist Admin page and follow these simple steps to book.

Most countries have funding bodies that can assist in covering housing & travel costs (e.g. Sounds Australia, PRS for Music, Buma Cultuur). If you aren’t aware of a funding body from your country, please contact and we’ll do our best to point you in the right direction.
