Following the conclusion of SXSW’s 2021 online edition last week, the Austin festival has announced in-person dates for 2022. Next year the festival will run from March 11-20 in Texas.
“We at SXSW are hopeful that once people feel it’s safe enough to return to what will be the new normal of life, there will be a real enthusiasm for getting back to the things that brought them joy or opportunity or just the simple need to be out amongst humanity,” festival organizers said in a release. “We can’t wait to bring people together once again to meet and share ideas.”
The festival is working alongside Austin Public Health to bring the storied event offline by next year with the health department’s Interim Authority Dr. Mark Escott stating in a release, “I’m very confident that SXSW will look normal, or near-normal next year.”
