Bad UX 1/5
Get asked for location permission every time I launch app which is very annoying, my schedule screen is slow to load and then always loads at the top. It should take into account what day if the festival it is or whether or not that act has already played (I.e. don’t load at the top of the list with my Friday stuff when it’s Sunday.
Battery killer 1/5
4.5hrs of background cpu time??? Only 45mins on screen. Yikes.

yo this is lit
Could be good but... 1/5
Annoyingly asks you to always turn on location services and database corrupted error lost my schedule. :(
Amazing App! 5/5
Everything I need to know - It’s my passport to ACL!
Can't log into my account 1/5
I have established a schedule using my Facebook login via desktop, and I just need to access that same account here, but cannot. If I could I'd be able to use this app.
So helpful 5/5
Love this app, I used it for ACL 2016. I used it to make a schedule and it helped a lot. Simple but really helpful easy to use 10/10 would recommend.
Don't be stupid 4/5
Seems like people who leave reviews about this app or either stupid or...stupid. The app gives a warning about the background activity if you allow it have location services enabled. Just turn that off when you don't need it. Simple.
Major battery drain 1/5
I went day one of ACL Fest. Only used this app to look at a map and schedules. Battery stats: 8 min on screen, 5 hrs background. Drained my 6s battery twice, probably tracking location nonstop. A festival app should really be more careful of battery use.
If you install this, MAKE SURE to bring a power bank or two for backup. Or you know, just avoid the app and use the website instead.
Always nice to have 5/5
I love the acl app, helps me navigate around ACL and answer some FAQs.
Doesn't Tie To Web Version 1/5
This app blows. The website lets us log in and spend time creating a schedule. No way to log in her and get my schedule. Have to do it all over again.
No Web Schedule Sync 1/5
By Hedda Prochaska
I don't understand the point of releasing the app before the festival if it doesn't initially sync with the Web schedule I've already taken the time to create. The only thing I want to do in advance is login, and easily share my schedule without having to remake it. I feel like this is an issue every year.
Update app for 2016 on its way??? 4/5
Love the app but when will it be updated to reflect the 2016 schedule?
When it works . . . It's awesomely helpful. 3/5
For ACLF 2015 it was so useful, not sure how ppl didn't know about this app. I was so grateful to have been lucky enough to utilize all that the app offered during the fest. Everything was here, Map, food truck locations, restrooms, stages, times, pictures, it was great! So why if the 2016 lineup is out, is the map not updated?! I'm trying to stay ahead of the curve and make my ACL experience an Epic one! Let's get to it ppl. Other than that, the app is great to have!
No grid view 1/5
It's 2015, how can you make a festival app with no grid view?
Great tool for the fest 5/5
All the information you'll need in an easily navigable format. Really dig the fact that you can register wristbands ahead of time and set up cashless which makes it really easy once you get there. Would like to see FAQs on the app for quickly searching on what to bring in etc but overall good festival app!
By Ytytyt 5(()()!!?,;456
Pretty sweet.. Works.
Pretty good app 4/5
I really like the fact that you can find the shows you want to go to and you can set a reminder for yourself. The only downside is the incessant and repetitive inbox messages. There should be a way to turn them off altogether.
Yay for the convenience 🎶 4/5
Overall great APP 5/5
I love the functionality of the app. I had several questions and felt they were all answered somewhere through your the app. I haven't registered my bracelet yet, so I'm not sure how the app will rate in that department.
Good but not very clear 4/5
By A Human on earth
The schedule format was slightly confusing to me
2-years in counting 5/5
This app is good, very detailed and gives you pretty much all the info you would need. ACL rocks !
Uninstalled immediately 1/5
Next to useless. It's 2015 and we still have a festival app (this one) that doesn't sync with an online schedule set up on the web site. And as other reviewers mentioned, there's no grid so the schedule is hard to navigate even if you're not interested in saving yours in advance. Insane. You'd be better off taking screenshots of the online schedule. Which I did.
I think this thing is just a delivery method for AT&T ads.
Minor improvements. 4/5
Could use a grid schedule. Would also like it to be synced with the website to have my saved bands linked. Also maybe an interactive map.
The spammiest app that I have ever downloaded 2/5
Prepare to receive upwards of 30 notifications of random things each and every day that you have notifications enabled.
ACL 2015 5/5
By Alley Cat
Brilliant app. Stoked to be able to track my kid while living vicariously through her! Jealous but impressed!!!!
Great app! 5/5
Great app! I've used it every year for the past 3 years. Sometimes updates are delayed but still very very useful.
It's helpful enough 3/5
It's great to have an app that can keep you on track with the schedule. All in all, that's pretty much just what it is: a schedule with a 2D map. The maps are not interactive enough however. Also there isn't much info available about each artist & what genre to expect. ACL prides itself at introducing you to lesser known artists but the app doesn't engage you in that experience with added convenience. It would be great if you didn't have to play a trivia game to win stuff. What about an app where you can check in & win VIP tickets or something?
Nice... But... 5/5
Like the schedule because there were very few printed schedules. Would like a easier version of the schedule grid to see what's going on all over instead of the way it is. Also hate having to click to on the ATT commercial
Great APP for navigating ACL 5/5
Very nice APP for seeing schedule and location for all the acts. Great job - Great festival
Love It! 5/5
By Mama Tra
Love the ap, loved the weekend! Such a wonderful city and venue. Thank you Austin!
So helpful 5/5
So handy to have on hand during the festival. Not lost like a chicken without a head.
Could be better for festival navigation 2/5
I received all sorts of notifications but nothing I wanted to see. Here's what I think would make this better. 1) alerts for when artists I marked are starting. + add option to suggest viewing order based on location services. 2) share your schedule with friends - this way you know who is seeing what within your group for easier coordination 3) ability to write personal notes and ranking for artists on your eSchedule - this allows you to recall what you liked or feelings to help make decisions on day of the event. 4) Ability to create a group schedule that can be shared with friends and voted on for key events. 5) link to Amazon MP3 or iTunes purchase so you can buy artists albums quicker. It would be ideal to have a "buy this one" button so you can purchase who you liked after the festival. Kinda like a shopping bag staging/queue. 6) coordinate with Apple Music to have an ACL radio station link in app
ACLFest App 5/5
This app was a great reference for the festival and easier than having to constantly unfold a brochure/map. Made it easy to track new bands we liked by starting them on the schedule. A grid of stage/artist would make a great quick reference as stated by another reviewer.
Very useful during ACL 5/5
Even without reception at ACL I was still able to look at the schedule. The map was pretty neat too
Great could be better 4/5
By LaLas world
I thought the app was helpful I think a few enhancements would be to have the actual food places listed individually on the app w their menu available. Maybe an alert when a band you wanted to see is about to start
ACL Festival 5/5
The ACL App makes your experience the more enjoyable. The design is so cute!
Works well, but could use a few enhancements 5/5
Great, helpful app for navigating the ACL festival. It would be nice to provide a view of the schedule grid (I'm not sure if this isn't available or just not working on my device) and to be able to sync my saved schedule from the ACL festival website. Maybe next year!
Perfect Festival Companion 5/5
Loved the app, but I wish it was easier to link my aclfest account to the app.
Great App 5/5

Love the quick reference to find shows
No sync, no share 1/5
Why is there no way to sign in and pull the schedule already created on the website, or upload changes, or share the schedule?
This app has about the same functionality as a paper schedule with a map on the back and a marker.
By Georgia Hallam
Why do I have to search by stage??? so bad..
No social sign on 5/5
Love that it didn't ask for access to my Facebook info ! Great app!!
Works .... 4/5
Has no practical purpose 1/5
Just echoing what everyone else has already said. The paper schedule and map are infinitely more useful.
Horizontal Grid Fail 2/5
The horizontal grid schedule fails to populate. turning your phone (tried my iPhone 6 and wife's iPhone 6s) bring up the grid interface but nothing shows up.
