About the Austin City Limits Music Festival
The Austin City Limits (ACL) Music Festival is an annual music festival held in Zilker Park in Austin, Texas on two consecutive three-day weekends. Inspired by the PBS concert series of the same name, the festival is produced by Austin-based company C3 Presents, which also produces Lollapalooza. The reputation of the ACL television show helped contribute to the success of the first festival.
The ACL Music Festival has eight stages where musical groups from genres including rock, indie, country, folk, electronic and hip hop perform for fans. Approximately 450,000 people attend the festival each year. In addition to the music performances, there are food and drinks, an art market, a kids area for families, and other activities for attendees.
Founded in 2002, the festival began as a one-weekend event and remained as such through the 2012 date. On August 16, 2012, Austin City Council members voted unanimously to allow the Austin City Limits Music Festival to expand to two consecutive weekends beginning in 2013. Source - Wikipedia
How Much Will Tickets Cost?
Right now, a 3-day ticket for either weekend one or two is going to cost you $255; there’s also VIP tickets and platinum ticket packages available. To learn more about these other tickets click here.
Thankfully ACL producers are working on offering a 1-day ticket, pricing information for that ticket should be available online this summer and this should generate more interest in ACL from those people who can’t afford the 3-day tickets.
