Getting to Zilker
There are plenty of ways to get to ACL Fest! There is no parking at Zilker Park or in the surrounding neighborhoods for ACL Festival so take advantage of one of the many ways below to get yourself to the ACL Fest. You can find a map outlining all transportation options at the bottom of this article!
ACL Music Festival Shuttle
Take advantage of the Festival Shuttles provided by ACL Fest. Board at Republic Square Park at the corner of 4th & San Antonio streets in downtown Austin and you'll be dropped off outside the Barton Springs West Festival Entrance. When you're finished rocking, hop back on for a return trip to the same spot. Shuttles will run from Republic Square starting at Noon on Friday and starting at 11AM on Saturday and Sunday of each weekend.
Bicycles and Walking
We encourage all our fans to use pedal and foot power – by far the easiest way to get to the festival! Bike parking is available on Stratford Drive after crossing the Mopac Pedestrian Bridge. Additional bike and scooter (Dockless Mobility) parking will be located on Toomey Road and Sterzing Street. MetroBike staff will host a MetroBike valet at their station located on the 1600 block of Barton Springs Road, guaranteeing you a place to dock your MetroBike when you get to the festival.
