What is the payment and credential policy for showcasing artists at SXSW 2024?

We have updated the Showcasing Artist Payment and Credential policy for SXSW 2024.

As an industry event, showcasing at SXSW provides indispensable networking, mentoring, and career development opportunities that are not a part of standard consumer-focused festivals.

For the 2024 Music Festival, showcasing artists will receive a registration package, which consists of an Artist Credential for each performing member of a group.

The SXSW Artist Credential provides each performer with the same access as a SXSW Music Badge (valued at $995 each), plus special artist-only benefits.


Domestic, U.S. acts can choose to receive monetary compensation in lieu of Artist Credentials. 

  • $350 bands
  • $150 solo artists

Showcase Applications open on June 27.

  • Application Fee Waivers available for specific local music organizations, including HAAM.
