The SXSW® Music and Media Conference is back for its 27th year. Our reputation as the biggest and most anticipated convergence of all things music is being kept alive by our continued effort to offer compelling daytime programming and stellar nighttime showcases.
In an effort to make badge pickup easier and faster, we’re happy to announce two new features for SXSW 2013: Badge Pickup QuickCodes and a Satellite Registration on March 7th and 8th.
Badge Pickup QuickCodes are PDF417 barcodes that act as unique identifiers that we'll use to print your badge. QuickCodes contain your registration number only, no other personal information is included. Bring your QuickCode and Photo ID with you to Badge Pickup, we’ll scan it from either a smartphone or a printout, check your Photo ID and print your badge.
You can find your QuickCode in SXsocial. To view your QuickCode, log into your activated SXsocial account and click on ‘QuickCode’ on the top left bar. From the QuickCode page, you will be able to view your QuickCode, email it to yourself, or print the Quickcode. We’ll also be sending your QuickCode in our “Before You Leave” email a few days before this year’s event. This email contains important and helpful information, including your Badge Pickup QuickCode.
SXSW will see two of Canada and electronic music's most visionary and influential artists 'in conversation', capping off our convergence-focused Music programming on Tuesday, March 12th at the Austin Convention Center. In a world exclusive for SXSW, techno and technology adventurer and world-leading DJ Richie Hawtin will engage on-stage with deadmau5 – one of the most globally-renowned electronic artists period. Together, they are considered the most innovative in terms of music's interaction with technology. "deadmau5 & Richie Hawtin: Talk. Techno. Technology." will see both artists discuss their careers with a huge focus on innovations in technology and the power of social media.

Jonathan Toubin, a former Austinite and well-known DJ, possesses an interesting and varied collection of records along with an amazing story of survival.
I remember seeing a friend's post on Facebook in December 2011 talking about how her pal had been in a freak accident in Portland and went on to read the horrific account of how Toubin, in town for a gig, was run over by a taxi in his hotel room. It was unclear at the time if he would make it but five months later he was back on the decks, spinning again despite massive hearing loss.
