Production News & Information

Production Volunteers are around every corner of SXSW. They can be seen working in the music clubs, film venues, parties, on the streets and behind the scenes of all things SXSW. We have a variety of crews to choose from, and most of them require little to no experience.

Production Volunteers are required to:

  • Be at least 16 years of age (some assignments are subject to venue age restrictions, which could require you to be at least 18 or 21)*
  • Work a minimum number of shifts during SXSW (Shift minimums vary from crew to crew)
  • Attend at least (2) pre-event meetings
  • Have a valid email address (no sharing of email addresses, please)
  • Agree to the Volunteer Release & Waiver of Liability
  • Acknowledge and adhere to the Volunteer Policies and Guidelines

As a Production Volunteer you will be working towards a perk based on the number of shifts that you work.

*Applicants under the age of 18 will need consent from a parent or guardian to volunteer.
