As in past years, ACL Fest is giving high school and college students a shot at buying sold out 3-day passes to the festival at earlybird prices. A limited number of $200 passes to both weekends of the festival will be available at the ACL Festival Box Office on Barton Springs Road across from the Barton Springs entrance to the festival grounds on Sat. Sept. 27. The sale starts at 10 a.m. and will continue until passes are sold out.
Students must have a valid high school or college ID to participate. Numbered placeholders will be distributed to students in line at 9 a.m. There is a limit of 4 passes per person, per weekend. In past years the line has started to form early, so expect a long morning but leave the keg of beer at home. Student day rules state there will be "absolutely no alcohol" and they "reserve the right to refuse to serve anyone"…mmm-kay?
