ACL Music Festival Essentials

Austin City Limits Music Festival is two fun weekends in Austin, Texas that are packed with amazing music from several different artists!

If you’re planning on going you’ll need to think about what you’re going to bring along with you for the long hot days under the Texas sun. Here are all the essentials you’ll need to ensure that you have a great time at ACL Music Festival!

Hydration Pack

Staying hydrated is very important at ACL Music Festival! You’ll be out in the sun all day so it’s important to keep sipping water throughout your time at the festival. You can get these cute Camelbak hydration packs online and then fill them up at the water stations inside the festival grounds!


P.S. Be sure they’re completely empty before you go into the festival so you’ll be allowed to bring it in with you!

Sunscreen Lotion

Because you’ll be out in the sun for several hours (usually this festival starts at 11 a.m. and goes till after dark) it’s important to stay protected with some great sunscreen! You won’t be allowed to bring aerosol cans into the festival, but you can bring in lotion.


SunBum is a great choice and it’ll protect you from the suns harmful rays that shine down on you during the festival! Be sure to reapply every few hours and when you’re done you can throw it back in your cute drawstring bag.
