The Hive's Guide to Austin City Limits
Fuel Up for the Day 🍳
Start your day energized with breakfast at a few of the Hive's favorite spots.
Austin Java, 1608 Barton Springs Rd.
A go-to favorite for the endless breakfast taco and quesadilla combinations!
Magnolia Cafe, 2304 Lake Austin Blvd.
Perfect post-festival late-nighting eating, too - the queso restores us!
Paperboy, 1203 E 11th St.
Fuel up before the festival with breakfast bowls and sandwiches at the Hive's favorite local food truck!
Getting to AC 🚗
ACL parking is notoriously difficult, so ride-sharing options are your best bet to get to the two festival entrances! Of course, if you're already downtown, walking along Town Lake is a great option, too!
Inside the Festival
Stop by a few of our favorite local eateries inside the park! We love P. Terry's for burgers, Torchy's for damn good tacos, and Tiff's Treats for something sweet!
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate! 💦 Two sealed water bottles (up to one liter each) are allowed in the park. We recommed bringing your own empty reusable bottle or Camelback, which you can refill at hydration stations throughout the park!
Stick with your besties! It's easy to get lost in the sea of people at ACL, especially with limited cell service. Use one of our Bumble flags as a meet up point!
Hive Festival Essentials
We always make sure to bring the following: portable charger, non-aerosol sunscreen, sunglasses, disposable cameras, advil!
Post Festival Eats
After a long day of heat, music, dancing and maybe a few drinks, refuel at our favorite late night spots!
Second Bar + Kitche, 200 Congress Ave (open till 11:30 pm)
Austin's most authentic farm-to-table New American plates. We love their Pizza Bianca!
24 Diner, 600 N Lamar Blvd (open 24.7)
Always open and always amazing! A total Austinite go-to for late night eats!
