If you can’t make ACL this year, it’s never too early to start thinking about Austin City Limits 2014. We can help you make a game plan for that.
First things first, you need tickets. Jump to the front of the line by adding yourself to the ACL newsletter. Newsletter members get first dibs on tickets, contacted about the early bird tier well ahead of schedule. 2013 Early Bird tickets sold at $200 per, which is an amazing deal for this much festival.
The next step is booking a flight. We typically book our flights about four to five months out of the festival – you’re able to save as much as 20% depending on the airline. Also keep your eyes peeled for major sales through airlines like South West – they run annual promotions that can net you $100 one-way flights.
There’s plenty of ways to stay in Austin but we suggest finding an awesome hotel if you don’t have the luxury of a friend in the area. There’s plenty of options for you here, no matter what your budget is. Book your hotel well ahead of time and you might end up spending under $100 a night for more economical stays.
