South by Southwest Tuesday released details on President Barack Obama’s keynote address this Friday in Austin.

It will be held at 2:30 p.m. at Dell Hall at The Long Center.

But tickets are limited. To be considered, SXSW Interactive, Gold and Platinum badgeholders must register for a drawing. No other credentials are eligible to enter. Randomly drawn winners will be notified Thursday night.

Evan Smith, Editor in Chief and CEO of The Texas Tribune, will interview President Obama. The Texas Tribune is also asking the public to send their questions to the Tribune.

“If you don’t win or can’t make it, this will be live-streamed on sxsw.com/live and simulcast throughout our Conference venues including Ballrooms D and EFG, and Room 18ABCD at the Austin Convention Center,” according to SXSW.
