We have attended numerous events here, from gubernatorial inaugurations, to award show to concerts. Although each is great, quite frankly, this was built as a live concert venue, and, well, it wins the top prize. In a city known as "The live music capital", there are obviously lots of choices, but for the music, this is best. Not a bad... More

A great setup that is well organized and secure. Bathrooms were convenient and drink stops were plentiful. Wine was overpriced, specifically $16 for their large cup, $10 for their small which is really small. Plenty of security and staff present.

The old venue was incredible and I do miss the history there but the new one is just as fantastic. It's like the new Opry. To me, it is a must see when you come thru Austin. The staff is incredible, many took the time to have a full conversation with us about My Morning Jacket (one of my fave... More

We had a fantastic time at Austin City Limits seeing Willie Nelson and Family. The venue is small enough that there really aren't any crowds to deal with, there are three floors, all with great views. Bars on each level and plenty of bathrooms makes if a good venue for everyone!

Where else can you see hundreds of bands within a few short steps? It isn't the quantity but rather quality. And your fun is convenient as well with many food and drink vendors located adjacent to each of the 8 stages. There is a food truck park in the festival with a seating under a huge tent. Restrooms are everywhere... More
