About the Festival
Austin, the State capital of Texas, home to University of Texas and an influential center for politics also has the reputation of being called the “Live Music Capital of the World”, due to its sheer number of live music venues. Austin City Limits Music Festival (two consecutive weekends), held in the amazingly beautiful Zilker Park, situated at the juncture of Barton Creek and the Colorado River, is undoubtedly one of the most crowd pulling festivals. Musical groups from various genres including rock, indie, country, folk, electronic and hip hop perform in this eight stage musical festival. An estimated 450,000 fans attend this festival every year.
ACL Festival 2016 returns to Zilker Park, to celebrate its 15th anniversary, for two weekends of music, food and magical days and nights under the big Texas sky — Sept. 30-Oct. 2 and Oct. 7-9, 2016. The lineup for 2016 is headlined by Radiohead, Mumford & Sons, LCD Soundsystem, Kendrick Lamar, Major Lazer and Kygo. Catch up with complete lineup for two weekends at ACL Festival website.
