ACL Music Festival Austin City Limits 2018

It’s almost time for the musicians to take the stage and enlighten us with a language everyone understands: music. Yes, the Austin City Limits [ACL] Music festival is nearing and with it the excitement to watch the brilliant artists display their talents.

Austin City Limits: The Event

This annual event takes place on two consecutive, three-day weekends in October. The festival started in 2002 and, initially, took up only one weekend. It wasn’t until 2013 that the event spread out over two weekends.

This festival is the child of the ACL television music program that’s recorded in Austin, Texas. The ACL show was Bill Arhos’s idea and the first season ran in 1976. The show helped to put Austin on the map as “Live Music Capital of the World.” The ACL television show also helped to make the festival the success it is.
