ATXgossip’s annual tradition continues with a constantly updated list of confirmed celebrities attending SXSW 2018.

In regards to speculation, we will publish separate posts so check back often.

This list only contains CONFIRMED celebrities attending SXSW 2018.

As usual, the term “celebrity” is difficult to define. Most of the list will be comprised of actors who have started to make a name for themselves. Some musicians, athletes and comedians will make the list due to their level of awareness. If you see someone missing from the list that you feel should be included, post a note in the comments below.

Also, because Rodeo Austin overlaps with SXSW 2018 (March 9 – 18), the acts performing on those overlapping dates will be included. Since the Texas Film Awards serve as the unofficial kick off to the festival, those attendees will be listed as well.
