Make The Most Of ACL: Marketing Tips

It’s the beginning of October and every Austinite knows what that means—the first weekend of Austin City Limits. Whether you’re a festival goer or festival avoider, this weekend will impact us all. ACL brings people from around the country to the city of Austin, giving our businesses and the city itself unique exposure. This weekend, the city will be packed with music, events, locals, and travelers from around the world. With hundreds of festival-goers hitting the streets of Austin, this is the perfect weekend to take advantage of blockchain marketing and consulting opportunities for your business.


ACL Festival: What Your Really Need To Know

October is here, and you know what that means: ACL fest is back! For the next two weekends, Zilker Park will be transformed into a live music haven. With a lineup featuring headliners like Drake, Foo Fighters, The Weeknd, and The Strokes, it is surely one you do not want to miss. First things first, get a plan together: The last thing you want to do is miss a band you wanted to see, or lose someone in your group. Rather than trying to decide on the fly, take a few minutes before you get to the show and get in a huddle and make a “game plan.” The day-by-day schedule is available, so get together, make a plan, and stick to it. This will take away a lot of the stress that can come from arguing at the park about who to go see, for how long, etc. PRO TIP: Don’t try to see half of one show and half of another. Instead, pick one show (yes, this is not an easy decision) and stay for the whole time. This will allow you to have one epic hour of music, with a nice view, rather than two twenty minute shows, with a ten minute sprint in between landing you in the back of both shows. Be smart with your packing: Before leaving for the festival, be sure to review all the restrictions that ACL has on items being brought into the park.
