While lines are in the DNA of all events, our goal is for you to spend as little time in them as possible. We’d much rather you attend a bunch of amazing ATX TV events, as we know you would, too! Our line strategy includes our Fast Pass System, and we also have multiple events happening at once so there’s always something for you to check out. Attendees will be let into screenings and panels in the following order:

  • Panelist and Sponsor Badges
  • Badges with FAST PASS reservations and ATX Guest Passes
  • Remaining Badges
  • Single Tickets (if sold, only available only at the State & Paramount Theatres)

With the exception of Camp Badges at Evening Marquee Events at the Paramount Theatre*, no ATX TV Festival Credential guarantees entry to any single screening, panel, or event, only admission up to capacity, so 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, join us because you like a few of the series and attendees, and 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!

Regardless of how you’re choosing to attend the festival, all seating at ATX TV Festival is first-come, first-served, aka no assigned seats. 

*In order to take advantage of the Admission Guarantee to Evening Marquee Events at the Paramount Theatre offered to Camp Badges, you MUST arrive 20 minutes prior to the scheduled start time and line up with the Badges with Fast Pass reservations to secure a seat. Don’t be tardy because if you arrive less than 20 minutes before the scheduled start time, we cannot guarantee entry.
