‘Hail-A-Honda’ Complimentary Rideshare  

Honda and the Central Texas Honda Dealers have teamed up with Ride Austin, Austin’s nonprofit rideshare, for the second consecutive year to bring the “Hail-A-Honda” rideshare service for the Austin City Limits Music Festival. Hail-A-Honda will provide attendees complimentary rides to the music festival over its two weekends (Oct. 6 –8 and 13 –15) from 11am to 5pm daily. Fans headed to the festival can access their free rides in ACL Fest-wrapped 2017 Honda CR-V sport utility vehicles via the Ride Austin app through the “Honda” vehicle class button. Cars accommodate up to four passengers, and riders will also receive a free bandana and ACL Fest chilled water during their free ride.

“ACL Fest is one of Austin’s greatest annual events and the Central Texas Honda Dealers are proud to be deeply associated with such a vibrant music-filled experience again for 2017,” said Cliff Collier, President of the Central Texas Honda Dealers Association.


Music-Meets-Pop Art: DABSMYLA Customized Honda Civic Hatchback

Australian husband-and-wife visual artists, DABSMYLA, known for their whimsical pop art and diverse projects such as cartoon murals, have collaborated with Honda for this year’s music festival season by bringing their customized Civic Hatchback to Austin City Limits Music Festival. The DABSMYLA Civic Hatch will be on display at the Honda x Waterloo Records Artist Signing Stage and is inspired by the artists’ shared love of life, friends and live music, with each design element carrying its own meaning. The instruments painted on the Civic Hatchback represent a deep love and appreciation of music with the lightning bolt representing the energy of live music, and the smile reminding fans of the good times they have had while experiencing live music.

“We are thrilled that this collaboration with Honda let us bring our musical inspiration to life – the energy that comes along with music at festivals is what we wanted to shine through our design. We wanted to be able to capture the love and positivity that people are feeling as they listen to their favorite songs in a live setting, like at ACL Fest,” said Dabs and Myla.
