With more than 20 crews to choose from, this crew type allows for the most flexible volunteer schedule option. SXSW Volunteers are engaged at all hours around the Austin Convention Center and other official SXSW and SXSW EDU venues throughout downtown Austin.
Volunteers with a SXSW Volunteer schedule are eligible for SXSW Volunteer Platinum*, Music, Film, Interactive, and SXSW EDU Badges.
SXSW Music Festival Volunteer (MF)
Music Festival Crews only operate during the days and nights of the SXSW Music Festival, therefore the time requirement needed to earn a badge is less than other crews.
Volunteers with a SXSW Music Festival schedule are eligible for SXSW Volunteer Platinum* and Music Badges.
*Platinum Badges are traditionally reserved for returning volunteers. A Platinum Nomination must be on file for volunteers earning a Volunteer Platinum Badge for the first time. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
