The Austin City Limits Music Festival just announced their line up and it’s going to be good! So we thought it only fitting to dedicate this week’s Splurge vs. Steal to homes near Zilker Park.

New to the fest? No problem! The Austin City Limits Music Festival is an annual music festival held in Zilker Park in Austin, Texas. It takes place on two consecutive, three-day weekends, and is inspired by the KLRU/PBS music series of the same name. The festival is produced by Austin-based company C3 Presents, which also produces Lollapalooza. In a nut shell, it’s one of the most epic outdoor music fests in Texas. And this year they have Guns N’ Roses, Childish Gambino, The Cure, and Cardi B, y’all!

Living near the park is a great idea, regardless of the show. Homes near Zilker Park run the gamut too, from swanky condos to eclectic moderns to updated farmhouses. And we found two that put you right near the action. All you have to do is snag tickets and stroll into Zilker park like you own the joint. Plus, the income potential could be massive for those who want to lease their home during the festival. Just check out the rates on some nearby properties on Airbnb!
