SWSX 2014 & Guest Pass Info
Just a week ago I relocated to Austin to the SoCo district (South Congress) just in time for SXSW 2014. I am originally from Austin and I remember when it wasn't so epic but now-a-days it has become an international phenomenon. Though I was not able to get a SXSW media pass for cutegeek.com this year I will be on ground zero conducting meetings and attending events that are either free to the public, media or accessible with the SXSW Guest Pass. What is the guest pass you ask? New to this years SXSW Festival Austinites can pick up a free guest pass that will get you access to the below events.
- SXSW Gaming Expo
- Flatstock 43
- Music Gear Expo
- Digital Creative Job Market
- Renegade Craft Fair: SXSW Edition
- SXSW Outdoor Stage at Butler Park
To get a SXSW guest pass you must go to one of the locations in Austin listed on the guestpass.sxsw.com site to pick one up (don't forget your drivers license with your ATX address on it). A little hint Waterloo ran out today but I got two passes at the Whole Foods on Lamar. Once you have your guest pass go to the guestpass.sxsw.com site and get on the list to receive invitations to shows, parties, and events throughout SXSW. You can also get a guest pass at the door at SXSW but it's best to get it earlier as the crowds will be insane by then.
Follow me on @nrpena, https://www.facebook.com/nina.pena, http://www.youtube.com/user/nrcpena and cutegeek.com during the festival I will be posting live! I will also be there conducting media meetings for the Examiner as well. For companies that will be there and would like to meet up, show me some new products or apps send me a DM @nrcpena. Best of luck to those attending (especially the first timers) and see you all at SXSW 2014 (#sxsw2014 #cutegeeksxsw)!!!
