SXSW 2016: Skip the Line at Hype Hotel with a FastPass

Hype Hotel logo

Attending the South by Southwest Music Festival is a completely different experience than standing around at one of those other multi-stage fests. Unlike an event where one ticket grants you access to some festival grounds and all the performances that take place over a weekend, SXSW essentially takes over nearly every concert venue, bar and every patch of asphalt in Austin for nearly a week. So to see who you want to see, you’ve got to be much more organized, dedicated and ready to spend a lot of hours standing in countless lines.

This year, however, Hype Hotel has partnered with Mazda (the Official Auto Partner of SXSW) to make the experience a little easier. If you want to see any of the incredible acts slated to play the venue (including Lower Dens, Car Seat Headrest and Sunflower Bean) or experience one of the Mazda activations, you can snag a “FastPass” to let you skirt the line and walk right in the door. And, unlike almost everything else at SXSW, it’s absolutely free.

Mazda and Hype Hotel are giving away five passes (including one for you and a guest) for each session throughout the festival. All you’ve got to do to enter is tweet “I want to #HypeON with #MazdaSXSW so I can skip the line at #HypeHotel!” The more you tweet the hashtags #HypeON and #MazdaSXSW, the better chance to win.

Winners will be selected at random and will receive a direct message with info on how to claim their prize. If you don’t win one day, just keep tweeting! For more details, go here.
