South by Southwest (SXSW) Music, Film and Interactive Conference
March 8th-17th, 2013
“SXSW uses enthusiastic and outgoing volunteers to welcome the international community of artists and industry professionals to Austin and South by Southwest. More than 3000 volunteers contribute hours of their time each year to SXSW. They are the faces of SXSW, working in and around the Austin Convention Center or the other SXSW official venues; often the first ones to greet our out-of-town registrants.”
I volunteered earlier this year as a video projectionist during the Film segment of the SXSW and it was a blast. I learned a ton as a first-timer from out-of-town, which I shared HERE. It’s a bit overwhelming since technically Austin gets taken over by swarms of film, music and tech startup folks for a week, but if you love festivals as much as I do then it feels like paradise. If you’re even thinking about going, apply NOW.
