Sales through www.SouthByWristbands.com for the SXSW 2013 Music Festival have ended. Thank you
Wristbands are usually reserved for Austinites, but each year, we release a small number of wristband and hotel packages to those living outside of Austin. The hotel/wristband package is a promotional effort by SXSW to permit out-of-town music fans the experience of the SXSW Music Festival, which takes place March 12-17. These wristbands are available for $159 and you can purchase one or two with your hotel request.
A Music Festival Wristband guarantees that you will not pay a cover charge to see official SXSW Music Fest shows at approximately 100 stages. Admission to all venues is subject to legal capacity and many shows will fill up. Admission to most venues will be subject to minimum age requirements.
SouthByWristbands.com is the only authorized seller of SXSW Music Festival wristbands to music fans living outside Austin.
