The following information was provided by the City of Austin and C3 Presents to help our neighborhood prepare for the upcoming Austin City Limits Music Festival:

ACL Music Festival will take place over two consecutive weekends: Friday, October 2nd at 11am to Sunday, October 4th at 10pm and Friday, October 9th at 11am to Sunday, October 11th at 10pm. The overall footprint of the event has not changed. Please see the map on the following page for closures. Preparatory closures are beginning the Friday before and will remain in place until the Monday after the festival.

Barton Springs Pool is open AT ALL TIMES during normal hours. During festival days parking is protected at the south gate lot off Robert E. Lee for pool swimmers. In addition, Auditorium Shores will be open at all times for general and off-leash use.

Zilker Park, and all Austin parks, are non-smoking venues. Festival patrons will be directed to smoke outside the festival gates on the street. All passholders will be allowed to exit and re-enter the Festival grounds during the event. If you choose to smoke outside of the Festival, be mindful and responsibly discard cigarettes.

SCHEDULED CLOSURES
This year Barton Springs Road will be closed on festival show days to all vehicle traffic starting at Sterzing Street. Cars will be able to make a u-turn on Barton Springs Road OR turn right onto Sterzing Street and be directed to South Lamar Blvd. This closure will reduce the amount of vehicles allowed into the neighborhoods and will create a safe crossing for pedestrians at Robert E Lee and Barton Springs Road.
