I’ve been so immersed in my work that I missed out many festivals.

Someone says this sentence is grammatical because it's a "so ... that" clause.

But I think it is grammatical even without the "so".

I’ve been immersed in my work that I missed out many festivals.

How do you think about this?

So...That expresses a cause and effect. You can not use this structure without that.

It's structure is: So + adjective/adverb + that

We use so…that (degree adverb) to create a comparison between two things. It is used to underline an action to show that something leads to certain results.
