SXSW Sydney 2024: A Sneak Peek at the Stellar Line-Up for the Festival's Exciting Second Year

The much-anticipated South by Southwest Sydney® (SXSW Sydney) has just dropped its first round of announcements for the 2024 Conference, alongside the Music, Games, and Screen Festivals. This follows the smashing success of the inaugural event last year, ramping up excitement for what’s set to be another blockbuster edition.

SXSW Sydney, steered by Geoff Jones, CEO of TEG Group, promises a vibrant and diverse array of visionaries and creative thinkers. “Following last year’s stellar kick-off, the excitement from the creative communities has been absolutely buzzing. This is just the beginning of several thrilling announcements to come,” said Jones.

The event will feature a stellar line-up including Rohit Bhargava, Sofia Hernandez, David Warner, Katherine Bennell-Pegg, and many more. Notably, the conference will include speakers from globally recognised companies such as Atlassian, IBM, The Iconic, and The AI Leadership Institute.

A Festival Brimming with Ideas and Innovation

SXSW Sydney 2024 is shaping up to be a hotbed for discovery and innovation, bringing together top minds from Technology, Games, Music, Screen, and Culture. The festival aims to continue as a platform for emerging talents and seasoned industry leaders to exchange ideas and push creative boundaries.

Last year’s event drew global heavyweights like Chance the Rapper, Nicole Kidman, and Charlie Booker, establishing Sydney as a global hub for creativity in the Asia Pacific. Building on this momentum, the 2024 edition is poised to elevate its offerings with an even more impressive array of speakers and sessions.
