Sign Up to Volunteer

Volunteer Registration will open for SXSW and SXSW EDU in January 2022.

Stay tuned for announcements and more details coming later in the 2022 season to this website.

We look forward to welcoming everyone back to Austin next March and want to assure you that the safety of our SXSW community continues to be our top priority. As the public health guidelines and laws concerning Covid-19 and associated variants continue to change, we are still finalizing our Covid-19 mitigation plans.

We will keep you informed throughout the season as we refine our on-site health precautions, and we will continue to work with local health authorities to follow the health and safety guidelines in place for Austin at the time of the event. Thank you for your ongoing support and understanding.

Sign Up Process

  1. Review the Volunteer Types & Badges page, to familiarize yourself with the different volunteer opportunities offered.

  2. All volunteers must register in Rosterfy, our online volunteer database.

  3. Volunteers should have their own email address. Please no sharing of email accounts.

  4. Volunteers under the age of 18 years of age will need a parent or legal guardian’s permission to register. Minor volunteers will be prompted during the registration process to have a guardian sign and submit the SXSW Minor Waiver.

  5. Once your registration is processed, you will be guided through the volunteer type and crew selection, scheduling, training, and badge selection process.

January Volunteer Fair

Although volunteer shifts are scheduled online, we know that having face time with SXSW Volunteer Managers and Staff can be really helpful! We will be hosting a Volunteer Fair in January at the Austin Convention Center. We will be available answer questions, talk about schedules, and provide insight into the SXSW Volunteer experience. Stay tuned for more details.
