Are there age restrictions for SXSW events?

Unless specific age restrictions are stated in the SXSW Online Schedule, all SXSW Conference and Festival programming may be attended by properly credentialed persons above the age of 13. Children 12 years of age or younger may attend if accompanied at all times by a properly credentialed adult.

Adults accompanied by children should respect the right of all attendees to participate in SXSW without disruption and without concern for the safety of children.

Adults concerned about age admission policies and age-appropriateness of specific programming should use common sense and rely on the online schedule for guidance. 

SXSW attendees are subject to the age restrictions of each venue, including clubs and bars.
