Become a Crowd Surfer at the 2012 SXSW with a new Foursquare Badge

Posted on March 10, 2012 by Craig Bowman


Foursquare has released quite a lot of music badges at past SXSW events like Trailblazer and  Spinsider ’11.  We are happy to see the trend continue into 2012.  The 2012 SXSW event happens from March 9th through the 18th.  Foursquare also recently started allowing bands to run specials and claim their events.

How to unlock:

Check into special events via the event option during your checkin.  Example – March 9th there were many unlocks happening at Betsy’s bar in Austin, TX when checking in at the    Samuel Davidson Event.


Unlock Message:

Wrist stamp? Check. Ear plugs? Check. Laid back foot-tapping-and-head-bobbing-stance? No way! Shoulder your way to the front and get into it! It’s SXSW and you’ve got a ton of bands to see!

Did you find a venue for the unlock?  Help our your fellow foursquare friends with a tip below, letting them know where you unlocked it.
