SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Esurance, the direct-to-consumer personal car insurance company, is giving away two free Platinum badges to this year's South by Southwest® (SXSW) Music Conference and Festival in Austin, Texas.
Entrants need only visit Esurance's Facebook page now through February 27 and "Like" Esurance then enter the sweepstakes for a chance to win.* http://www.facebook.com/Esurance?sk=app_380382911976866
In addition to the Platinum badges, which provide access to all three portions of SXSW — music, film, and interactive, the winner will also receive a 10-day hotel stay and $1,000 cash, which may be used for travel expenses.

Attendees can also claim an Esurance bandana at the booth to take part in a cool game.
SXSW 2012 offers attendees a unique convergence of original music, independent films, and emerging technologies. As one of the premier venues for creative endeavors, the nine-day event draws media attention and participants from around the world. Last year, almost 50,000 people attended.
