Here Are The Best Celebrity Panels and Events Happening at SXSW 2021

Yes, SXSW 2021 is working a little differently. But here’s the good news! There are still a ton of celebrity attendees. And because the festival is happening online, almost everyone will be able to see those famous faces (though there are limited virtual seats for some streams).

Instead of our annual list of celebs who are attending, this year, we’re highlighting each day’s top celebrity panels and events.
