Live Nation’s Festival Family Welcomes Austin City Limits Music Festival

Austin City Limits Music Festival joined the Live Nation family of festivals in late 2014 when Live Nation became a majority shareholder of C3 Presents.

When ACL Fest and Live Nation joined forces, Live Nation’s CEO Michael Rapino stated, “I have long admired what [C3 Presents] built and now I look forward to working alongside them as they continue to build a world class festival company.”

Since then, Live Nation and C3 Presents have spurred continued growth that’s remained true to the festival’s history of excellence. In 2018, the economic impact of ACL Festival was up nearly 4 percent from previous years.

ACL Fest and Live Nation’s Festival Legacy

After merging with Ticketmaster in 2010, Live Nation is now the leading entertainment company in the world. In partnership with the Live Nation Entertainment team, C3 Presents produces and promotes Austin City Limits Music Festival, which is part of the company’s impressive portfolio of over 60 festivals. In addition to ACL Fest, these festivals include Lollapalooza, Ozzfest, Music Midtown, Reading, Leeds, and more.

Each festival promises a unique and unforgettable experience for artists and fans. Austin is known as “the live music capital of the world” thanks in part to the endless ways fans can customize their festival experience with music, food, art, and more at ACL Fest.
