Austin City Limits Music Festival

Austin is a city known for having amazing live music, and the Austin City Limits Music Festival is one of the most exciting live events the city has to offer. Major musicians from around the county – and around the world – convene on Austin to play a series of live performances in a festival atmosphere, and more than 75,000 people show up to enjoy the show.

Background Info

Honda has been an advocate and supporter of arts and culture for years now, and the automaker has a long partnership with the Austin City Limits Music Festival. For the past nine years, Honda has been sponsoring the festival and helping to facilitate the unique vision of Austin and the artists who flock to be there.

The festival takes place over two weekends – October 6th-8th and October 13th-15th in Austin’s Zilker Park. While Texas is a long way from the Newark and Hoboken area, this is one festival you won’t want to miss – and this a just a sampling of the fun that Honda is helping to make happen.

The Artists

Honda feels so passionately about this festival that they have sponsored an entire stage and booked a lineup of some of the hottest acts in music right now. The headliners include Chance the Rapper, The xx, and The Gorillaz. So regardless of your taste in music, there is something to be excited about seeing. The lineup continues with artists breaking their way onto the charts like Run the Jewels, Cut Copy, Glass Animals, and The Revivalists.The festival has a lot more music and activities to offer, but you could stake out a spot at the Honda stage and have a great time without wandering.

Easy Access to Austin

Honda knows music, but the company’s expertise is obviously automobiles. The automaker is helping to add as much as it can to the Austin City Limits Music Festival by offering attendees a free ride to the event. Simply download the Ride Austin app and look for the vehicle class button labeled Honda. After you request a ride, a Honda CR-V wrapped in festival attire will arrive at your door and take you and up to three friends to the front gate of the festival totally free of charge. You’ll even get a festival bandana and a free bottle of chilled water on the way. This service, dubbed Hail-a-Honda, is available throughout the duration of the festival.

Custom Civic on Display

The Austin City Limits Music Festival is a celebration of culture generally, and in order to enhance the atmosphere Honda has commissioned the artistic team known as DABSMYLA to create a customized Honda Civic Hatchback. The finished product is covered in whimsical pop-art renderings of music instruments and iconography relevant to the festival. If you attend the festival, you will surely want to soak up its creative appeal up close. Check it out throughout the festival at the Honda Stage.

Autograph Signing with Featured Artists

The Honda Stage aims to create a complete experience. In addition to the artists on stage, the custom Civic on display, or the other Civic models available to explore, festival goers have a chance to interact with some of their favorite musicians. Honda has partnered with Waterloo Records – an Austin-based recording label – to connect festival artists with the fans who love their music. A rotating roster of artists will be on site at the Honda Stage throughout the festival to autograph copies of albums and interact with attendees.

Plan a Trip to the Austin City Limits Music Festival

This is one of the country’s premier festivals, combining leading musical acts with Austin’s warm, welcoming vibe. If there is any way you can make it from New Jersey, we strongly encourage you to attend. And if you need a vehicle that makes the drive easy and accommodating, consider a new Honda.

If you can’t make it to the festival, don’t worry. Honda has been facilitating creative expression for 16 years now, and that commitment shows no signs of slowing down. The Honda Civic Tour pays for a major recording artist to tour as many of the country’s live music destinations as possible. Honda also sponsors festivals, events, and unique experiences from coast to coast. Expect something with Honda’s fingerprints on it to visit the New Jersey region soon.
