The 18th annual Austin City Limit Music Festival will take place this year across two weekends in October, the 4th-6th and 11th-13th.

With Guns N’ Roses, Mumford & Sons, Childish Gambino, The Cure, Tame Impala, and Billie Eilish as headliners, Cardi B will take the stage on weekend one and Robyn will be there the next.

With eight stages and many more artists scheduled to perform, there’s something for everyone — whether you like rock, indie, country, folk, electronic, or hip hop. Nearly half a million people are expected to take part in the festival this year.

It’s not even just about the music, either. There are food options from more than 35 award-winning chefs & restaurants, including vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options. There are bars, concessions, official band merch, festival merch, and free water stations that festival goers can take advantage of.

Tickets start at $105 and can be purchased for one of the two weekends for all three days or just one day. On top of that, there are options for normal General Admission, General Admission Plus, VIP, and Platinum — which give festival-goers options like access to a lounge featuring food and drinks in a relaxed setting, up-close views of stages, and golf cart transportation.
