FESTIVAL INFORMATION

Austin City Limits is the biggest music festival in Texas, hosting over 130 performers, 8 stages, and a crowd of over 150,000 over two consecutive weekends. Produced by the same company behind Lollapalooza, ACL is a great way to listen to your favorite artists and discover new artists with friends in a laid-back environment. Although it is held at the tail-end of festival season, Austin is still fairly bright and sunny during the fall, making it the perfect place to hold a festival in a beautiful city. After the festival hours each night, ACL also hosts Official Late Night Shows at smaller, more intimate venues all over the city, so attendees can see more special performances from their favorite artists. Separate tickets must be purchased to attend these late-night concerts that start before weekend one and end with weekend two.
