A full day of Austin City Limits Music Festival requires frequent refueling from all the dancing, rocking out, and/or thoughtful indie swaying. The October music festival is now less than a month away, so it’s time to take a look at how to stay energized for acts like headliners Jay-Z, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and The Killers. It takes place from Friday, October 6 through Sunday, October 8, and again from Friday, October 13 through Sunday, October 15, in Zilker Park.

ACL Fest’s food vendors are largely unchanged this year. Popular food trucks Chi’lantro, Mighty Cone, and The Peached Tortilla are basically a given at this point, alongside hometown favorites like Amy’s Ice Creams, Torchy’s Tacos, and JuiceLand. Micklethwait Craft Meats will sling barbecue for the second time.

The few new additions include Shake Shack, Peli Peli (the Houston-based South African restaurant that is opening a downtown Austin location), Austin Gourmet Popcorn, and Kebabaque, which features Indian and Mediterranean fusion fare.

Absent from the lineup this year is Hat Creek Burger Co. (though Shake Shake, P. Terry’s, and Wholly Cow Burgers have that food category covered). Sno-Beach replaces shaved ice vendor Snowie. Also gone this year are Freebirds World Burrito and Mighty Bird (the latter closed in May).

This year, the festival is adding a second food court to its grounds, which will be found near the southern portion of the park. View the full array of food options available at the festival below, with asterisks (*) noting first-time vendors. Look out for Eater’s updated ACL Festival dining guide later this fall.
