Austin City Limits Music Festival 2021, Texas
October 1 - October 10
Expect big names headlining like Guns N’ Roses, Mumford and Sons, Childish Gambino and The Cure when the state capital of Texas welcomes the Austin City Limits Music Festival on 1-3 and 8-10 October. The 2020 festival was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
How to Get to the Austin City Limits Music Festival 2021
Held out at Zilker Park, the music begins at 11am and goes on to ten at night over eight stages. Free shuttles are available from downtown, cycling there is encouraged with ride share schemes in place, though, best of all, there is a walkers trail with amenities that takes you straight there.
Austin City Limits Music Festival Tickets
Three types of ticket are on offer: General, which essentially gains you entry; VIP, with shaded viewing deck, a VIP bar, spa and a grove to relax in; and finally, Platinum with a viewing deck close to the main stage, better viewing areas for five stages, an exclusive bar, private entry to the event, spa, golf cart transportation, wifi, your own locker/charger, access to after shows, and exclusive dining.
The park itself has a range of outlets selling food (including vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free), and drink, though free filtered water is available at specific stations. Also, there is a section for charities and non-governmental organisations seeking like-minded people. Elsewhere you will find a market area and a kiddie park which the under 10s aren’t charged for – as long as they don’t try to sneak in without you.
Day tickets start at $105, and three-day tickets at $260. A Platinum three-day ticket will set you back $3,600. Purchase your tickets here. (Details for 2019 Festival, to be updated nearer the date).

Things to Do in Austin Texas
Also in Austin there is kayaking on Lady Bird Lake, paddle boarding on Lou Neff Point, or river tubing, tours to see bats, haunted bars and craft beers, the State Capitol building and the historic centre. The most bizarre is the Cathedral of Junk, a wry monument to reconsidering lifestyle choices that destroy the planet, though as this is a private project it is by appointment only.
For an alternative take on American festivals, why not fly to the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta?
