To determine which SXSW badge holders will be admitted to these shows, SXSW will conduct ticket drawings, which grant priority entry for specific SXSW credential types only. Tuesday night's show will be open to all badge types. All following shows will be available to Music and Platinum badges and SXSW Music Festival and Artist Wristbands only. Each winner may bring a guest, but the guest must also have a SXSW Badge or a SXSW Music Festival or Artist Wristband.

To enter a drawing, SXSW badge and Music Festival Wristband and Artist Wristband holders will have their credentials scanned at the iTunes Festival at SXSW ticket drawing booth located in the Palazzo at the southwest corner of the Austin Convention Center.

Entry for each show will happen in the following schedule:

Coldplay / Imagine Dragons / London Grammar
Sunday, March 9 10am-6pm

After the drawing ends, the randomly-selected winners will be sent an email with further instructions no later than 12 hours before the show. Winners will be instructed where to obtain their tickets. Entrants who are not selected will also be notified by email at this time.

All winners are able to bring a plus one. However, this person must also have a SXSW Badge or a SXSW Music Festival or Artist Wristband.

If you can’t be there in person, you can still get a front-row seat—just stream the shows live or after the performances in the iTunes Store. You can also watch the concerts on the big screen with Apple TV—just select iTunes Festival from the main menu or stream via Airplay with the official app.
