Sign Up to Volunteer

Volunteer Registration for SXSW and SXSW EDU 2022 is now closed. Please check back in fall for information on how to volunteer for SXSW 2023.

SXSW Volunteer Vaccination & COVID-19

Safety is a top priority for SXSW. In support of our volunteers, the Austin community and our guests from around the globe, SXSW is requiring proof of a completed primary vaccination series against Covid-19 prior to attending pre-event volunteer gatherings, and before your first volunteer shift. SXSW will accept all COVID-19 vaccinations approved for travel to the US. It is highly encouraged to receive a booster vaccination, if eligible.

SXSW Volunteers are asked to comply with current health and hygiene rules, and SXSW’s guidelines regarding masking, proof of vaccination, and SXSW’s Health Pledge.

SXSW is using the Clear App with SXSW Health Pass to verify the vaccination status of volunteers. The Clear SXSW Health Pass will only work for U.S. domestic users. International volunteers must bring their vaccination card. More information on how to download Clear and set up the SXSW Health Pass can be found here.
