ACL Festival Is Back-To-Back Weekends in 2013!

It’s official. We’re having twins! After many consecutive years of sell-out crowds, the festival is doubling down to accommodate more fans next October! Next year, The Austin City Limits Music Festival will showcase back-to-back offerings of the same great lineup of music, art, local food and activities to Zilker Park. Mark your calendars NOW for Weekend One happening October 4-6, 2013 and Weekend Two happening October 11-13, 2013!

“Every year we hear from longtime fans that they’ve missed out on buying tickets because of the speed at which the festival sells out,” says Charlie Jones, partner at C3 Presents. “The expansion will allow more people the chance to experience ACL, and we are grateful to the fans, the neighborhood associations, KLRU, and the City of Austin for their continued support of the Festival.”

One thing is certain – having two back-to-back weekends of performances from the biggest names in music will create a week-long celebration that further solidifies Austin’s claim to the title of Live Music Capital of the World.

Two weekends will also mean a greater investment in Austin’s green spaces. Since 2006, the Festival has provided $6 million to Austin’s parks for improvements around the city. One of the most significant projects funded by the ACL Festival was the 2009 Zilker Park renovation, a rewarding endeavor with results that today benefit all who enjoy this beautiful Austin landmark.

With the 2011 Festival infusing $106 million into the local economy, the expansion will translate into a hearty economic boost for the city as festival-goers fill hotel rooms and restaurants, all the while exploring Austin’s popular landmarks and hidden gems.
