Those 10 and younger are free, and the festival caters to little ones with Austin Kiddie Limits, a dedicated area with kid-friendly bands like Rocknocerous and Orange Sherbert.
Seek retail therapy
Take a break from the music and peruse the goods at ACL Art Market, featuring everything from custom guitars to wood-block printed t-shirts.
Get your grub on
Some of Austin's best food can be found here, including BBQ, authentic Tex-Mex, and even vegan options.
Fly into Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS), and take a shuttle or rental car to your hotel. Think twice before driving to ACL; there’s no parking on site, and while some enterprising locals offer parking for around $20 a day, it can fill up quickly. Better yet are free shuttles departing from the centrally located Republic Square at the corner of 4th and Guadalupe. You could also bike.
