The perks you earn as a SXSW Volunteer will allow you free admission into most events associated with your perk. However, our volunteers are expected to put their volunteer commitment first. You may not get to see everything you want. We depend on all volunteers to show up on time and be ready to work for all their scheduled shifts. We don't take kindly to no-shows, aka "flakes."
If you're the type who wants to see it all and do it all during SXSW EDU and SXSWeek, we strongly recommend that you buy a badge.
