Yes- it’s official! The Long Center is happy to confirm that Jimmy Kimmel Live! is headed back to Austin for another week of South by Southwest fun.
Jimmy Kimmel Live is hitting the road! Destination? The Long Center’s Dell Hall! The week-long trip coincides with the 29th annual South by Southwest® (SXSW®) Music Festival.

PARKING AND TRANSPORTATION
There is no dedicated parking location for this event. Due to the volume of tourist traffic expected in Austin for SXSW, finding parking may be difficult. We recommend parking at Highland Mall (6001 Airport Blvd., Austin, TX 78752). Highland parking is open from 10:00AM – 9:00 PM and available for only $12. The Long Center is easily accessible via the Metro Red Line. After parking take the Red Line (Stop #5603) to the Auditorium Shores Station (Stop #2763). The venue is approximately six miles from the Highland Mall parking location.
