Meow Wolf Outside
SXSW 2018


Austin! Meow Wolf is coming to SXSW

Austin! Meow Wolf is coming to SXSW this year to present a never-seen-before, never-seeable-after immersive presentation we’re calling “MEOW WOLF OUTSIDE (sponsored by OpenMind).” We’re making the most of our stay in Austin by offering you plenty of music, virtual realities, and creatures, but there are two very special things we want to share with you.


Site-specific Immersive Events

For the duration of SXSW, Meow Wolf Outside (sponsored by OpenMind) will be offering FREE immersive art activations, accessible to anyone who signs up on a first- come, first-serve basis. These activations can take the form of concerts, seminars, flash mobs, and games. Thing is: we’re not really certain where these Anomalous occurrences are going to emerge. Creative chaos answers to no one, not even to our project managers.

OpenMind, our most omniscient sponsor, is monitoring the situation on the ground in Austin and they’ve worked out a solution: SIGN UP BELOW to receive text message hints about the locations of these SUPER SECRET, one-time-only events. Some events may require you to RSVP, so be ready when OpenMind comes calling…

As a special guest to Meow Wolf Outside

Austin Musician Shakey Graves will be hiding all of the tracks from his forthcoming album on cassette recorders hidden in waterproof boxes stashed around Austin. Individuals who find the tapes, will get a special invite to a private listening party and performance during SXSW!


Grand Prize: A Meow Wolf Lifetime Pass

Meow Wolf lifetime passes are among the rarest objects in the cosmos. Every so often the Multiverse coughs up a couple of these glowing Cubes and they get snatched up by collectors almost immediately. Our most recent batch sold for about ten grand each. It’s easy to understand why; the bearer of one of these Cubes is granted free admission into any Meow Wolf exhibition or event anywhere in the Multiverse for ETERNITY (or life, whichever comes first). With one of these cubes you can stroll right up to, say, the grand opening of our Denver exhibition in 2020 and walk in like you own the place.



Every contestant will report to our passport office to receive their own Meow Tours Passport with ten blank spaces for stamps. The stamp bearers are scattered across SXSW and you’ll have to use your wits to find them. OpenMind, from whom nothing is hidden, will blow up your phone with tantalizing clues about who carries these stamps and where they can be found.

First one who gets a passport with all ten stamps back to the passport office wins the Cube. It’s that simple.


Please remember that this competition will take place from March 9th to March 15, 2018. Successful contestants should plan on being available these days. Only the first 250 people to arrive in person at the consulate will receive passports.
