What to laugh your way to 2020 SXSW? We definitely recommend the comedy pass. You’ll find seasoned comics, sketch performances and some of the funniest new artists in the world share the stage. In addition, you can taste some of the finest food, drinks, snacks and candy the Texas Hill Country has to offer. Originally, you could only enjoy the comedy festival for one day. Then, promoters and fans realized one day wasn’t nearly enough. If you have a conference badge, film or music wristband, you are welcome to laugh your worries away!


The Interactive badge allows you to participate with some of the hottest topics and thought leaders on the planet. The Film badge lets you immerse yourself and explore the art of movie and film making. Many visitors have rubbed elbows with some of the most influential directors, editors and artist in the world. The Music badge gets you the best access to all the music events at various locations. After all, if you’re seeing a world-famous band, why not be down front!

The lineups and schedules continue to be updated, so check back often!
