Should Austin Charge More to Hold Festivals in City Parks?


AUSTIN, TEXAS (KUT) — We’re in the middle of festival season in Austin. On the heels of the Austin City Limits Music Festival, Fun Fun Fun Fest is coming up in less than two weeks. Both events are held at city parks.

A task force is looking at how the city allows its parkland to be used for music festivals. One topic it’s just beginning to tackle: the fees the city charges music festival organizers.

But, state law limits how much the city can charge.
