Austin City Limits: Where Music Boundaries Are Limitless
Music capital of Texas? Definitely Austin. With the biggest festivals always flocking to its doorsteps, Dallas is a hot city for music, and it’s that time of year for one of the grandest to return: Austin City Limits. ACL is the biggest of the big – which is a lot to say when you’re in the state that always demands bigger!
Just how big is ACL going to be? Massive. So insanely huge that it will span two weekends long. In the past, there have only been a slim number of music festivals able to pull this off, but they’re going all in. Weekend one general tickets are already sold out, while weekend two is still up for grabs at $225 a pop for a 3-day pass. VIP and platinum packages are available for both weekends starting at a $1,050 and all the way up to $10,000, if you’re looking to upgrade to a travel package.
With a lineup that features Eminem, Pearl Jam, Outkast, Skrillex, Beck, Calvin Harris, Lana Del Rey, Foster the People, The Replacements, Zedd, Major Lazer, and well over a hundred other artists on the docket – your excuses not to go are zero to none. Let’s get down to the nitty gritty though – why should you go to this festival and how will I convince you that getting that weekend two pass is vital? One word: Lorde. She will only be making an appearance the second weekend. That’s right. Your experience will differ depending on which weekend you choose to go to! That’s a pretty darn exciting thought knowing the same old same old ain’t gonna happen here.
It’s not just about music, though. The city itself is home to art and culture and all types of people. Local eats will be lined up all over the park, while an art market will be settling their stands as well. ACL has a strong love for its community and good causes, so organizations that support improvement and saving lives will also set up around the area.
So get down to the lone star state – wherever you may be, and experience what we can online imagine will be one of the greatest times you’ll have in 2014. Take that, other music festivals.
Tickets for weekend two GA & VIP are available here!
