If selected to perform, will my act receive any compensation from SXSW?

If selected to showcase, each performing member of the act will receive an Artist Wristband as a benefit for performing. 

Domestic, U.S. acts can choose to receive a small monetary compensation in lieu of Artist Wristbands. Payment is a one-time direct deposit for the act, not per member. 

If selected to showcase, non-U.S. acts will not be compensated monetarily. Each performing member of the act will receive a SXSW Artist Wristband (see Artist Wristband details here).

Each act is compensated for one showcase, regardless of how many showcases they perform. 


Each performing act has an option to purchase two discounted general SXSW Music Festival wristbands for working crew members.
