TuneCore x SXSW 2021


2020 was a difficult year for so many artists and professionals across the music industry. Creators have had to think on their feet while figuring how to engage fans and earn revenue. South By Southwest, the biggest music conference in the world, has pivoted to a virtual 2021 experience to ensure artists can benefit from its educational and strategic content. 

In an effort to give back to our artist community, TuneCore is providing 100 artists with free virtual SXSW badges. 

SXSW has long been a melting pot of innovation, discourse, and networking for independent artists of all stripes. If you're a TuneCore Artist who wants to get access to all of the sharpest music expertise and most pressing industry conversations, we want to hear from you.


PLEASE NOTE: only artists with an email address tied to a TuneCore Account with at least one existing release to qualify.

In the application below, you'll have the opportunity to tell TuneCore why you want a SXSW 2021 virtual badge, and how you'd make the most of your time during the experience. Tell us a bit about yourself as an artist and you may be selected to unlock access to important panels and keynotes.

Application window: February 11th - February 18th, 2021. Selected applicants will be contacted directly.
