Driving to the festival is not recommended. In fact, there is no parking at Zilker Park and you cannot park on many neighborhood streets surrounding the festival or you will be towed.
There are many alternatives to get to the festival including ride shares, biking, taxis and buses.
However, if you insist on driving, you should think about taking advantage of the festival's free shuttle to Zilker Park. If you're hopping on the shuttle, you'll want to park or take some form of transportation to Downtown Austin.
After that, festival-goers can board the complimentary shuttle at Republic Square Park at the corner of Fourth and Guadalupe streets. The shuttles drop festival-goers off on Barton Springs Road outside ACL's Barton Springs West Entrance.
The shuttle will start on both Fridays at noon. On both Saturdays and Sundays, the shuttle will start at 11 a.m. On all days of the festival, people need to make sure they get on the shuttle by 11 p.m. at the Barton Springs West Entrance in order to return to Republic Square Park in Downtown Austin.
If you are driving around Downtown and the festival, you'll want to see which roads are closed beforehand.
