If South by using Southwest is a unmarried hipster in thin denims toting a Pabst Blue Ribbon, the Austin City Limits Music Festival is that equal hipster in a few years; married, in comfortable-suit denims, with a child or two and still probably toting that PBR. Born out of the PBS live performance collection of the same call, that is a competition for severe track fanatics.
For properly over a decade, Austin City Limits Music Festival has grown in length each year, taking over the 351-acre Zilker Park, the crown jewel of Austin’s public green areas. While the once a year celebration has its roots in rock, pop and jazz, it now hosts the whole lot in among, and has attracted global-famous acts including Arcade Fire, Drake, Childish Gambino, Odesza, Florence+The Machine and Jack Johnson.
Due to sellouts each year, ACL Festival increased to 2 weekends in 2013, with the lineup duplicated over both weekends. This form of gracious gesture is consistent with the accommodating vibe of this pageant and of Southern hospitality in standard. This isn’t an edgy dip into excess like Coachella or a boozy hunt for the next massive factor like SXSW; ACL Festival is that rare event that has grown with out forgetting where it came from, final an extension of the city and the cultural values it espouses. At its heart and soul, ACL Festival is set the song and the enthusiasts, with an emphasis on a circle of relatives-pleasant true time.
