I had been wanting to attend ACL for years, and this year I finally got my change. It was a completely unforgettable and incredible experience that I loved every minute of. The crowd was generally friendly and there were plenty of great bands to watch. The food choices were fantastic- the variety was great, there was so much I wanted to try. Obviously this music festival is incredibly crowded, but it's fairly easy to get from stage to stage and the crowd never gets out of control. The only downside is the bathrooms-who likes using port-a-potties?! This is just part of the festival experience, but I definitely think I'll go VIP or Platinum next year to use the air-conditioned restrooms. The biggest downside wasn't getting to the festival, as we were able to take a taxi and get there way before the gates opened when hardly anyone was there-it was the getting home part that was a nightmare. There are several different methods of transportation but we decided to wait in the extremely long line after the festival that evening to grab a ride home. We waited in line for about an hour and a half before we finally were to the front of the line. Despite the setbacks I had at the festival this year, I think I'll be coming back every year from now on. Absolutely love Austin, TX.
