Just like Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits Music Festival is an amazing annual festival produced by C3 Presents. However, unlike most similar events, this one covers two consecutive weekends, so attendees have twice as much time for fun. This year’s festival takes place from October 7th to 9th and October 14th to 16th in Zilker Metropolitan Park. Our guide will provide valuable information about ACL Festival parking availability, public transportation, admission tickets, and the 2022 lineup. Use it to save time and money and have an unforgettable, stress-free experience.
Is There Parking for ACL Festival?
The on-site Zilker Park parking lots will not be available during the ACL Music Festival. The same goes for surrounding streets, so don’t leave your car there, or you’ll be subject to Austin parking tickets or even towing.
Limited ACL Festival parking for visitors with disabilities will be obtainable near the entrance on a first-come, first-served basis. People who want to snatch these spots must come early and display a valid ADA parking placard or license plate.
Off-Site Lots & Garages
Multiple facilities across the river offer convenient parking, but the walk to and from them would take 25 to 30 minutes. If you’re willing to do it, pre-book a spot at the following locations through SpotHero.
- Depot Lot at 508 W Lynn St.
- Hartland Underground Garage at 533 Campbell St.
- Hartland Plaza Garage at 1759 West 6th St.
- 601 W 6th St. Lot at 548 Nueces St.
Standard daily parking fees vary from $12 to $15 but note that the event rates might be higher.
Public Transit—The Best Alternative
Capital Metro is your go-to choice for getting around Austin. MetroBus 30 runs between downtown and Westgate Transit Center, making several stops along Barton Springs Road. If you need a ride from the northern part of the city, hop on MetroRail Red Line to downtown and then take MetroBus 30. A single-ride Metro fare is $1.25, while a Day Pass is $2.50.

All 3-day tickets are sold out, but you can purchase a 1-day pass online at the following prices.
