South By Southwest Is Offering a Buy One Get One Free Deal On A Ticket For A Student To This Year’s SXSW.
As many of you know, Nibletz is the #1 Google News Source for SXSWedu, the edtech and education focused pre-show that runs up to SXSW proper (that’s what we call it around the office). But it’s important to note that this particular story is in regards to SXSW proper, that’s Interactive, Music and Film.
Since it’s inception South By Southwest has always been about the innovator. Even in it’s roots as a music festival, in the old days SXSW was the place for breaking, new, independent artists and artists that were doing abstract and innovative things with music. As the festival emerged into it’s current state, with a full on music festival, interactive festival and film festival, innovation and education is still the ethos of the entire organization.
“SXSW empowers you to connect with tomorrow’s most important innovators today. This can be a young filmmaker whose ambitious new approach takes their craft in a fresh direction. Or a teenage entrepreneur who shows the promise to re-invent a process no one else has tackled. Or a buzzy new band that you hear for the first time at the event.” SXSW said in an email.
It’s this commitment to innovation and education that spawned the ever growing, SXSWedu. It’s also that same commitment that sparked something really cool for this year.
SXSW is offer a buy one get one free ticket promotion when the second ticket is also for a student. All you have to do is buy one regular priced student ticket for SXSW Interactive, SXSW Music or SXSW Film at just $625 and the second student ticket is free. That makes it just $312.50 per person.
