Tips for Staying Safe at ACL Music Festival Weekend Two
With a successful weekend one of Austin City Limits Festival in the books, there are tips and tricks being shared for those attending weekend two, hoping to improve one’s experience. Ultimately, safety is the festival’s number one priority, so we are sharing a few safety reminders to ensure everyone has the perfect weekend.
The Austin Police Department received over twenty reports of “thefts from person” cases during weekend one of Austin City Limits Festival. These thefts mainly consisted of pick pocketing cell phones, cash, and cards. In order to eliminate this crime, remember to store your valuables in a close pocket or bag. According to the festival’s policy, bags with more than one main pocket are prohibited. However, a small fanny pack or crossover bag should be approved and decrease the cases of theft in the park.
Overall, remember to stay hydrated and aware during your time at Austin City Limits. Empty water bottles are able to be brought into the park and filled at complementary water filling stations. Four medical tents can be spotted on the festival map if any physical or emotional issues arise. Lastly, reminder to stay close with friends and look out for one another. Austin City Limits Festival is a weekend for enjoying tunes and making memories with friends, don’t let anything get in the way of that!
