We still have a good six months or so before we’ll know the lineup for the 2018 Austin City Limits Music Festival, but if you’re an ACL die hard who’s in it for the experience your first opportunity to scoop three-day passes to the festival is Thursday morning at 10 a.m.

Early bird passes for both weekends, Oct. 5-7 and Oct. 12-14, will be available for $235 a pop. That’s up $10 from 2017 early birds and ticket prices will increase at a later date.
