According to a Facebook post, APD has been getting alerts from ACL attendees who had reportedly gotten their phones stolen during the event.
The initiative was run in conjunction with the ACL Music Festival Day No-Refusal Initiative through assistance from the City of Austin Transportation Department.
As Austin police have ramped up for weekend two, organizers of the festival have also made some adjustments after weekend one.
Officials say that Lizzo will still be performing on the Miller Lite stage for Weekend Two but that ACL fest will simulcast the performance on the Honda stage screens so that people can spread out and still enjoy the show.
According to the Austin Police Department, there have been 43 lost or stolen cell phones so far this year at the Austin City Limits Music Festival.
As Day 2 of the Austin City Limits Music Festival got underway, so did an undercover sting operation involving the offer of a hot ticket to get in that caught the attention of police.

Coming out of a September with record-breaking heat, organizers are trying to prevent festival-goers from dangerous side-effects caused by high heat.
