If you are in the Austin area, you must go to Austin City Limits live and catch a show. Its the best theater and very small so the views are amazing. There is a parking ramp across the street, easy to get to. The experience is one of a kind.

I attend a private party at ACL. We were the first people in the venue so we got to have a good look around. The bars were great and the food delicious. I was impressed with the security.

Attended a party here. There is an outdoor terrace with outdoor bar. Plenty of bar areas inside. Saw Jimmy Vaughan with really good acoustics. You can listen from the floor close to the stage or sit comfortably upstairs in theatre type seats.

I went weekend 2 of ACL 2016 and had such a great time! Not only was the lineup great, the way that Zilker park was set up was so easy to find your way from one stage to another. Everything was properly labeled and there were plenty of bathrooms and beer halls, which has been an issue at other music... More

This is a very nice venue very nicely laid out with good acoustics and a nice staff. We went here for our anniversary to see Trisha Yearwood. No she didn't have Garth in tow.

A great venue where many great country singers have performed over the years. We had a big music event with catered dinner here and it was great to have numerous bar and food areas, many levels with indoor/outdoor seating, large screen TVs, and a big dance floor and stage for bands.

Had a blast! Great music. Tons of food. Everyone was so nice. Free shuttle was great and saved us our sanity although the pick up at the venue (to leave) could have been labeled better. As out of state visitors we got a little lost but it was awesome. Worth the trip!

The ACL at Zilker Park is an incredible great festival for many different kind of music tastes and offers all the music heart can wish. It was a pretty civilized atmosphere - from the entrance procedure to the crowds standing in front of the stage. There are all kinds of food available as well as many drinks. The area is... More

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
