ACL Music Festival
The ACL Music Festival is held in Austin’s Zilker Park, which is comprised of over 350 acres in South Austin. Mark down October 7-9 and October 14-16 on the calendar for this fun-filled event! One of the many great things about this event is that performances cover a wide variety of genres, appealing to all audiences. Big name performers such as Death Cab for Cutie, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Marcus Mumford, among others, all keep up a continuous upbeat vibe. In between sets, participate in giveaways, have fun with the little ones at the mini-fest for kids, or grab a bite to eat from the ACL Eats Food Court. Much more than typical fair food, the food court boasts tasty dishes from Austin’s favorite restaurants.
