The second weekend of ACL is identical to weekend 1 in another key area, it was just announced. It’s also sold out of three-day wristbands. But don’t be deterred, last minute Kinko’s Fest shoppers. If the first weekend is any indication, Barton Springs Road will be a bargain-seeker’s paradise, with wristbands selling for less than the $225 list price.

“Scalpers overbought,” C3’s Charles Attal said on Sunday, when asked about some ticker brokers selling 3-days for $120 or less. In previous years, the supply of 75,000 ACL wristbands was much less than the demand and scalpers cleaned up. But with another weekend, and 75,000 more wristbands out there, it’s been a buyer’s market.
