ACL Student Sale Happens Tomorrow at 10 AM

Tomorrow is the annually anticipated student sale for ACL Fest passes. Unlike years past, there won’t be camping out in an HEB parking lot or in front of building on the UT campus; it’s all happening online. Starting at 10 AM tomorrow (Wednesday) morning, high school and college students with a valid ID will be able to purchase a maximum of two 3-day passes for either weekend of ACL Fest through the festival’s website. The ID will need to be presented at the box office when the passes are picked-up. And for non-students, there are still 1-day passes available for each Sunday, and there’s an option to purchase a ticket to the Feast Under the Stars at ACL event taking place the night before the festival on Thursday September 29th. The hefty $250 ticket includes a 5-star meal prepared by 6 award-winning chefs, complete with wine pairings and dessert.

But here’s the big question: will this feature genuinely augment the likelihood of a real match? (SPIN)
