A Mini Guide to The Austin City Limits Festival
With October in sight, the cusp of ACL season is here and the greens of Zilker await our return. Whether it’s your first time going to the Austin City Limits festival, or your millionth, we have created the perfect mini-guide to soak up the most of your ACL experience.
Nothing says “two is better than one” like back to back weekends, a standout distinction of ACL in comparison to other festivals. The two weekends feature slightly differing lineups, a curated diverse selection of performers, with something to cater to all of Austin’s taste. Past years’ lineups have included headliners such as Kings of Leon, Coldplay, The Cure, Tame Impala, and even Kanye West. 2022 rolls in headliners like contemporary R&B singer SZA, country artists The Chicks and Kacey Musgraves, electronic-house musician Flume, and the masterminds behind the hit Californiacation: The Red Hot Chili Peppers.
