Austin City Limits, Austin's other great music festival, caters to audiences of all ages and has a "green", family friendly vibe, which makes it more appealing to crowds who seek a more laidback festival experience.
After back-to-back years attending Coachella, it was plain for me to see that festival fashion was at a premium in the California desert. But where can a style-savvy festival fan go to get their fix the rest of the year? Here's a hint: book a flight to Austin and be prepared to get on stage.
Don't let exhaustion keep you from seeing some of the best bands of the festival, which are almost always hidden in the first three hours of each day's lineup. Grab a couple breakfast tacos to go and get down to Zilker Park early. You'll be glad you did.
