When talking about ACL Fest, the benefit-to-value ratio is a pretty dang fair one, with dozens of bands per day at the cost of what most headliners charge for a single touring gig, $10 lunches, and reasonably priced tallboys. But the best value of the entire festival is the heavily endorsed free entry for kids 10 and under, along with the fest’s exceptionally curated Austin Kiddie Limits that will appease the grouchy flock between sets with hair painting, temporary tattoos, drum circles, art activities, and all the organic food samples that their parents are too cheap to buy, at least in the bulk amounts they offer to each tot at ACL.
