GA+ Tickets

For a little more cash, you can get a little more luxury added to your festival experience. And when it comes to a locale that’s known for its crazy heat, dust, and unpredictable weather, having a place to lounge in the shade might just be worth those extra bucks! Austin City Limits is offering General Admission Plus (GA+) tickets this year, which include the following extras:

  • A private lounge with shade, seating, air-conditioned restrooms, and complimentary water and soft drinks
  • Full-service cash bar with beer, wine, and cocktails
  • Food for purchase from your favorite Austin restaurants 

These GA+ tix originally sold for $500 (plus fees) for a three-day pass.

Unfortunately, they’re all sold out on the official ACL website. There are still a few GA+ tickets available via resale on the secondary market, where they’re going for a whopping $999 on ACL’s official ticket exchange.

There were single-day GA+ options too (originally starting at $175), but they’re also sold out on the official site and you’ll have to look even harder to find these on the exchange!

VIP Tickets

For the festivalgoer who has it all (and prefers to keep it that way), you might want to consider Austin City Limits VIP tickets. You’ll get even more creature comforts and bonuses. In addition to all the stuff that General Admission folks get, here’s what the VIP Austin City Limits ticket entails:
