Need ACL tickets? They’re available, but pricey

Gary Dinges

This time last year, wristbands for the Austin City Limits Music Festival were deeply discounted.

This year, though, that’s not the case.

On sites such as Craigslist, most wristbands are going for face value — or more.

One-day wristbands for Saturday and Sunday start at $90, while three-day wristbands start around $200.

One overly optimistic dude is offering a three-day wristband for $750 — money he says he’ll use to help fund his honeymoon. Another seller has five tickets at the non-negotiable price of $325.

Will they get that much? Probably not. But, hey, you can’t blame them for trying.
