Things Are Happening at Zilker Park…

With only two days until the fun starts, crews are hard at work setting everything up (and treading lightly on Zilker’s lush new grass). From the LiveStrong Stage to Austin Eats Food Court to The Barton Springs Beer Garden, the eighth edition of ACL Festival is starting to take shape. Here’s a sneak peek behind the scenes…

The solar powered Grackle Tower going up! Head there for daily schedules & a cool mist.

Barton Springs Road will become one big sidewalk on Friday, leading up to the main entrance of the Festival.

The LIVESTRONG Stage is going up. It will play host to headliners Kings of Leon, The Dave Matthews Band, Pearl Jam and 12 other artists this weekend.
