Sign Up to Volunteer

Volunteer Registration for SXSW and SXSW EDU 2023 Opens in January 2023!

Who Can Volunteer?

Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age, or older*. No special experience is necessary and there is a volunteer role for everyone!

How Do I Sign Up to Volunteer?

Registration, crew, and schedule selections will begin January for SXSW and SXSW EDU 2023. All volunteers should create or up their volunteer account online, and have their own email address. A link to register will be available when volunteer registration begins.

There are two ways to sign up to volunteer once you’ve created your account:

Online – Once registered, continue your online journey by selecting a volunteer type and crew, creating your schedule, and choosing your volunteer badge with a few clicks of the mouse!

In-Person – Volunteers who would prefer to sign up in-person should mark their calendars for one of the two SXSW 2023 Volunteer Calls. Volunteers will have the opportunity to speak with volunteer crew leaders, ask questions, and get assistance signing up for a crew and shifts.

January 15, 2023 Austin Convention Center, Ballroom ABC 12PM to 4PM OR January 17, 2023 Austin Convention Center, Room 18ABC 5PM to 8PM

Volunteers under the age of 18 years of age will need a parent or legal guardian’s permission to sign up. Minor volunteers will need to attend one of the Volunteer Call in January with their legal guardian, or email to arrange signature of SXSW Minor Waiver by a guardian.

If you have questions about volunteering for SXSW, please email Volunteer Headquarters at for assistance. See you soon!

*Some crews have additional age requirements due to venue policy.
