Celebrities Attending SXSW

SXSW Canceled – Celebrities Attending SXSW 2020 No Longer Confirmed

**SXSW 2020 has officially been canceled. At this time, please disregard this list of celebrities attending.**


ATXgossip’s annual tradition continues with a constantly updated list of confirmed celebrities attending SXSW 2020, happening March 13 through 22.

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

This list only contains CONFIRMED celebrities attending SXSW 2020.

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.

Since the Texas Film Awards serve as the unofficial kick off to the festival, those attendees will be listed as well.

And also, keep in mind that appearances are always subject to change – especially with all the cancellations happening this year due to the Coronavirus, AKA COVID-19 (we are attempting to update these).
