When you’re broke in college, concert tickets equal the ultimate luxury. Should I eat straight ramen this month to snag those Chance the Rapper concert tickets? And you can forget about out-of-town music festivals. Your bank account won’t let you see your favorite artists grace the stage in a weekend’s time. But at College Magazine, we want you to get those once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

We teamed up with Student Universe, Morning Brew and Austin City Limits to get you to the ultimate music experience this October—the Austin City Limits Music Festival.

That’s right, we’re giving away two general admission tickets to the second weekend of the Austin City Limits Festival (October 13–15, 2018). Head to Zilker Park to see Jay-Z, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Chance the Rapper, The Killers, Gorillaz Martin Garrix, Solange and so many more hit the stage. You’ll also indulge in the ACL Fest foodie experience, eating everything from ice cream to fried chicken sandwiches. 

The lucky winner will receive up to $1,000 towards flights and hotels from StudentUniverse, a travel booking site offering exclusive discounts just for students. Once you make it to ACL, get ready to splurge like never before since Morning Brew will give the winner $500 spending money. Morning Brew skims the business news for you, then sends you the highlights early in the a.m. so you can start your day business savvy.

Make this fall more than just a PSL daze by spending the weekend of October 13–15 in the live music capital of the world. Come for the music, stay for the food. The Austin City Limits Festival showcases Austin’s premier restaurants every year. At the ACL Food Court, you can taste the most delicious festival food, drinks and sweets Austin offers. If you prefer food of the vegetarian and gluten-free variety, food vendors will make mouth-watering options for your dietary needs. Never fear, college students stuck eating ramen for the fourth night in a row. Stuff your face with great food and then head back to the concert stage to jam out to your favorite artists.

In between sets, wander by the ACL Art Market to check out accessories, head gear, boots and posters. Their unique selection comes from more than a dozen local and national artisans. Or if you’re dying to meet your favorite artists in person, swing by the Waterloo Records Honda Artist Signing Shack. You’ll be the envy of your dorm with autographs and new additions to your vinyl collection.

The 21+ crowd can hit the Barton Springs Beer Hall, where you can choose from a selection of 16 different craft beers. Festival-goers can even catch the weekend’s NFL and NCAA games on the Barton Springs jumbo screen while chilling out between sets. Do you even need to leave Zilker Park all weekend long?

We know you’re dying to go to this year’s Austin City Limits Music Festival. So don’t wait—enter the sweepstakes now! Who knows, come October you might find yourself munching on an ice cream sandwich and rocking out to The Red Hot Chili Peppers, all without breaking the bank.
