Volunteer at Austin City Limits Music Festival

ACL Fest’s signature greening programs, Rock & Recycle and Divert It!, are presented by Austin Parks Foundation. Rock & Recycle encourages festival attendees to pick up a bag of recyclables from the grounds in exchange for a specially designed ACL Fest line-up tee. Divert It! enlists volunteers to encourage and educate fans by helping them compost, recycle and send less waste to landfills.

APF is making the festival greener by encouraging recycling and composting, and educating fans about our Recycling in Parks initiative.

These programs are made possible by a team of 300+ volunteers. Volunteers spread the word about our mission and encourage fans to get involved. PLUS all volunteers get to enjoy the festival before or after their shift! Applications for greening volunteers are open Friday 8/30!
