ACL Fest adds food court; bans bags with multiple pockets

[cmg_anvato video=4191998 autoplay=”true”]

If you’re going to Austin City Limits Festival this year, it should be easier to get your grub on. The festival has expanded the food trailer offerings near the Barton Springs stage on the north side of the park to create a second food court. New trailers in that area include Burro Grilled Cheese, Tino’s Greek Cafe and Good Pop.

TINA PHAN/AMERICAN-STATESMAN. 10/3/14. Festival attendees line up at over 20 food vendors at Austin Eats food court during ACL Fest 2014.

The festival has also updated their bag policy to ban bags with more than one pocket. Here’s the official description of acceptable bags:

Bags will be restricted to small purses, totes and drawstring bags only. Bag size may not exceed 14” x 11” x 5” (35cm x 28cm x 12cm), or 30 linear inches (75cm) in total, and must have no more than one singular pocket or opening. Backpacks and bags with multiple pockets are prohibited.

And here’s a diagram:

The festival has also improved their wine bar and added a viewing deck option at the American Express stage for fest-goers who opt for a VIP ticket.
