About the festival                                              

The Austin City Limits Music Festival is an annual event in Austin always being held at Zilker Park for two weekends in a row in 3 continuous days. It’s produced by the same company that produces Lollapalozza, C3 Presents, which started the festival based on a PBS concert series with the same name.

Festival-goers will be able to enjoy eight different stages of music acts ranging from rock and hip hop to electronic, indie, and event country and folk. Guests will be there all day which means there are plenty of food and drink options, entertainment for kids, and activities including an art market. In past years, huge acts in the music industry have been in attendance including Foo Fighters, Radiohead, and The Eagles.

This year’s music experience

For many people, tickets are purchased way in advance for one night, two nights, or a whole weekend of entertainment and the acts aren’t always announced yet.
