Final Preparations Before ACL Gates Open

Updated: Friday, October 4 2013, 08:41 AM CDT

Event organizers spent Friday morning putting the final touches on Austin City Limits at Zilker Park. Vendors spent the early morning hours unloading equipment they'll use to feed 75,000 people per day. The City of Austin approved 70 permits for food vendors ranging drink stands to gourmet restaurants. Chef David Bull with Second Bar and Kitchen told KEYE he's been preparing for this year's ACL since last year's event.


Officials with the city want to urge those attending the festival to take public transportation to ACL and to not park and nearby neighborhoods. Police will be monitoring the area and ticketing. If you are going to drive, park at One Texas Center. There is no parking at ACL.


ACL takes up a small portion of Zilker Park and the area not occupied by festival goers will be open to the public as well as Barton Springs. Event organizers say canteen bottles and hydration packs are allowed but they have to be empty when you enter ACL. There will be water stations inside where you can fill them up. Also be prepared for a bag search.
