Season 10 (2021) Festival Badges


***Walk up price of a Season 10 Festival Badge is $350.***


Attending ATX with a Season 10 (June 10 – 13, 2021) Festival Badge is an awesome experience! Your Festival Badge includes access to all panels and screenings at official ATX Festival locations. Seating for Festival Badges is first-come, first-served (unassigned), and you’ll have exclusive Badge-Only perks such as access to ATX’s Fast Pass System!

Just like Day Wristbands, we only sell a limited number of Festival Badges and could potentially sell out! So make sure to get yours today!


Perhaps now more than ever, we believe that TV is a powerful medium for change and empathy. We are committed to our mission of fully serving and fostering our community at all times. For this reason, and to ensure the ongoing safety of all, this year we will not be having a physical festival in Austin, but instead we will be celebrating Television where we all enjoy it, the couch! We are excited to announce that ATX Television Festival Season 9 will be a virtual weekend (June 5 – 7, 2020) where we can still come together and celebrate our love of TV and its ever evolving forms, especially during times like these. We’re calling it “ATX TV…from the Couch!

If you purchased a Season 9 Credential, please click here for more information and to fill out your Season 9 Transfer Form by June 1st.


While ATX Festival Badges are non-refundable, if you bought a badge and are unable to attend, you can transfer your badge to another person until May 14, 2021 with a $25 service charge.

To transfer your badge to another attendee, please contact our ticketing partners at Include your Festival Badge confirmation number, as well as the name and email of the new Badgeholder.

We are unable to accept badge transfers after May 14, 2021, and no two (2) badges will be printed with the same name,
so make a point to get any transfers taken care of promptly


As Festival Badges do not guarantee entry to any single screening, panel, or event, only admission up to capacity, we advise our attendees not to purchase a Badge for a single event or individual.

If you only want to see one person, you may very well be disappointed. We do our best to prevent changes in programming, however schedules can change or an opportunity to see that one person simply may not arise. Instead, come because you like a few of the series and attendees, but ultimately because you love TV and you’d like to learn about it, discover new shows, and emerge from the festival with a new group of TV-loving friends like yourself!

Make sure to check out Prepare for the Fest & How to ATX pages for info about Line Priority and Admission Policies, our festival protocol, even how to dress (y’all, it’s hot in Texas).

Festival Badge not for you? Maybe you’re more of a Day Wristband person? For more festival information, visit our FAQ Page.


More information about Season 10 Registration will be available when we’re closer to the festival. You must present your valid photo ID when picking up your badge, and you might also be asked to produce identification that matches your badge as proof of person during the festival, so it’s good to keep it handy!
