AUSTIN, Texas - Aug. 8, 2019 - Fest-goers will notice a new stage at ACL Fest this year, but it's the same homegrown vacation rental business families and friends have known and loved for decades. Vrbo®, formerly HomeAway®, will sponsor a stage at the annual festival, welcoming talented artists and music fans from around the world to Austin.
Since 2015, popular artists such as HAIM, Portugal. The Man, and The Chainsmokers have graced the HomeAway stage at Austin City Limits Music Festival.
'Every day, Vrbo helps friends and families travel better together and make lasting memories around the world,' said John Kim, president of Vrbo. 'We're looking forward to welcoming visitors to ACL Fest to enjoy great music and make memories in our own backyard.'
In March, the popular vacation rental business introduced the Vrbo brand, complete with a colorful new logo and new pronunciation that's easier to say and remember: 'VER-boh.' In May, Expedia Group named Vrbo its primary global alternative accommodations brand. At ACL Fest, Vrbo's new logo will be prominently displayed on its stage, which will be located on the south side of Barton Springs Road.
Headquartered in Austin, Vrbo has unique cabins, condos, and beach houses in 190 countries around the world.
