AUSTIN, Texas - April 23, 2019 — Vrbo®, which pioneered online vacation rentals nearly 25 years ago, has teamed up with Austin City Limits Music Festival to give away an unforgettable festival experience for one lucky fan. The ACL Fest sweepstakes winner will receive four 3-day VIP tickets to the festival, four backstage passes to the Vrbo hospitality suite and a 4-night stay at a 5-star Vrbo property in the heart of south Austin.

“Enjoying music festivals with friends or family members is one of the most memorable travel experiences,” said Melanie Fish, travel expert at HomeAway. “Vrbo is excited to offer an amazing vacation home where music fans can relax, unwind and stay together during ACL Fest weekend.”

The ACL Fest “On the House” sweepstakes winner will stay at a spacious 3-bedroom/2-bathroom Vrbo vacation home near the festival grounds, complete with modern upgrades and high-end retro design. Guests will feel right at home during weekend one of the festival.

In addition to providing the sweepstakes prize, Vrbo is offering another opportunity to go to ACL Fest for homeowners who have properties in Austin, Dallas, Ft. Worth, Houston and San Antonio. As part of the “Rent Your Nest, Rule the Fest” ticket giveaway, homeowners who create a new Vrbo listing and complete a 2-night rental before Sept. 3 can claim two 3-day ACL Fest wristbands and two 3-day backstage passes to the Vrbo stage*.

“Austin City Limits Music Festival attracts hundreds of thousands of music fans every year. Homeowners who list and rent out their homes for fest-goers can generate a significant amount of income,” said Jeff Hurst, chief commercial officer at HomeAway. “Last year, travel demand for Austin vacation rentals spiked 30 percent during the first weekend of ACL Fest and Vrbo owners in the area earned an average of $2,032 for four nights.”
