You spoke, we listened. We’re excited to improve your experience at ACL Fest again this year by redrawing the map to better utilize existing areas of Zilker Park. Check out some of the changes we’re making to improve your weekend at the fest, including adding a third entrance, shifting stages for better sound, a new wine experience, and more.
We’re making it easier for you to get in faster. New this year, we’re adding a third entrance to the fest. Choose from three convenient entrances: the Barton Springs East Entrance, the Barton Springs West Entrance, and the Lady Bird Lake Entrance. With more gates to choose from, getting to the music will be easier than ever.
We’re also opening up a brand new Box Office to make it easier for you to pick up your wristbands. Head to the East Box Office if you’re coming from Lamar Blvd, or check out the West Box Office if you’re coming from Mopac or getting dropped of from one of our free Official Festival Shuttles.
2 Weekends, 8 Stages, 140+ Artists, and better sound. You spoke, and we listened. With the expanded festival area, stages are being shifted to improve crowd flow and avoid sound bleed between performances. Check out this map to see the new stage locations and get ready to plan out your festival.
This year you will have even more places to relax in the shade and enjoy the fest. Wine lovers will rejoice in the new ACL Wine Tent where you can enjoy an expanded selection of wines from around the world; reds, whites, rosés and bubbles will be flowing all weekend. This beautifully shaded haven will be the perfect place to relax in between sets, chill with a nice bottle of wine or a glass of cold bubbles and nibble on a delicious bite.
PLUS we’re adding an additional ACL Eats Location so that you never have to go hungry between sets.
In addition to the exclusive viewing areas in front of the main stages, Platinum guests will enjoy a new Lounge with a private, elevated viewing deck plus access to side-stage viewing platforms at the two main stages. All of this and more including the Platinum amenities you’ve grown to love – the dedicated Platinum entrance to the festival, golf cart transport around the park and food and drink from award-winning chefs.
Get ready to shop til you drop. The ACL Fest Store is getting an upgrade, with a new location and a larger shopping experience. Beat the heat with our air-conditioned megastore and shop the latest official merch so you can rep ACL Fest all year long.
For those looking to dance the night away, a new Silent Disco powered by Quiet Events has been added to the schedule for both weekends. Each night from 8pm-10pm at the Tito’s Handmade Vodka Stage, fans can slip on a pair of ACL Fest-supplied headphones and quietly groove to tunes from live DJs.
