What is MyACL?
Creating a MyACL account today gives you access to the festival all at your fingertips. You can prepare for your time at the festival by creating a customized schedule based on the artists you want to see, and share with your friends so you can plan beforehand together.
What Happens if I Don't Create a MyACL Account?
Basically, you can continue to use the entire site, listen to the music player, learn about bands, see when they are playing, participate in contests and all that jazz without ever interacting with MyACL. But you'd be missing out (and who wants to do that?). Signing up for MyACL lets you customize and compare your ideal festival weekend and keeps you up-to-date with what's happening around Zilker Park during the weekend. Signing up for MyACL does not sign you up for our e-mail list.
And no, signing up for MyACL doesn't mean we'll bug you with unwanted updates. You're in control and you can customize as much as you want to.
What is the Difference Between the "E-list" and "MyACL"?
MyACL is how you customize your entire ACL Festival experience. It is how you create a Custom Schedule, Custom Lineup and Custom Festival. Anything you add will be added to your customized MyACL on aclfestival.com.
To stay even more connected to what's happening with ACL Festival, sign up for our E-list to receive email updates directly to your e-mail inbox about:
- Official Late Night Show
- Artist giveaways
- Super-special deals
- Updates on future festival tickets to get a head start!
How Do I Sign In To MyACL?
You can access MyACL by clicking on the vertical brown side bar on the left side of the page.* Simply click on your picture, if you've already logged in. If this is your first time logging in, click on the silhouette image in the circle at the top of the side bar to get going on MyACL.
This side bar lives on every page and will keep you signed in once you log in. So you can go explore artists and craft your schedule, and always have access to your MyACL from every page.
*If you're planning your festival from your mobile device, the MyACL access bar will be at the top of every page.
What All Can I "Add" to MyACL?
Anything that has a "+" or "+ ADD" button. This can include, but not limited to:
- Bands on the Lineup Page
- Individual Artist Pages
- Set Times from the Schedule Page
- Vendors appearing on-site at the festival (ACL Food Court and ACL Art Market)
Keep an eye out for the "+" or "+ ADD" and make sure to click that button. Once you add something to MyACL, you will see the green bar on the left light up. This means your time has successfully been added to your MyACL so that you can stay updated with special notifications.
You can always remove something from MyACL as quickly as you can add it. Just look out for the "-" or "- REMOVE" button.
What is the Music Player?
The music player is a collection of Soundcloud tracks from artists appearing at ACL Festival. It will stream continuously as you navigate throughout different pages of the website. You can activate the player without being signed into MyACL, either by clicking the play button on the left side of this page, on the Lineup or Schedule Page or any Band's Page.
We chose Soundcloud to source all music tracks so that the artists could decide what music they wanted to share and so you wouldn't have to create any other accounts to listen to it. As more artists add tracks to Soundcloud, we'll add them to aclfestival.com.
I Don't Want My Information Public. What Can I Do?
Head to the MyACL Account Page (located in the bottom-right of the footer) and click the "Make Your Festival Private..." button.
