What was ACL Fest missing? A Golden Porta Potty, apparently

I mean, I think most people would have been satisfied with better cell service but sure, this is cool, too:

Music fans with champagne wishes and caviar dreams can now enter Austin City Limits Festival’s latest contest, a chance to win 10 single day tickets plus 10 private passes for the festival’s new Golden Porta Potty.

Uh huh. Golden Porta Potty.

What does this throne fit for Midas contain within its glittery walls? For one, more gold, but also a television livestreaming the festival, sundries for freshening up a Zilker-battered body, Wi-Fi, magazines, a phone charging dock and — this is really the only incentive one would need to enter — air conditioning. ACL is giving away sets of passes for each day of both festival weekends, and the contest runs until the end of the day Tuesday.

Watch a video tour of this dream commode below.

Enter the contest on the ACL Fest site. But remember: At the end of the day, it’s still a toilet in shed.
