Austin City Limits Music Festival
R.E.M © Austin City Limits Music Festival
Rated as one of the largest music festivals in the United States, the three-day Austin City Limits event in a 15-acre city park grew as an offshoot from the popular television series of the same name. The Festival draws young and old to a series of stages where 130 bands give ongoing performances on eight stages over the course of three days, and draws more than 70,000 people every day. The music played at the festival covers a broad spectrum, from indie to country to jazz to pop to electronic and everything else in between. The park hosting the festival is Austin's Zilker Park, itself a famous landmark of the city.
Venue: Zilker Park
Date: 30 September - 2 October, and 7 - 9 October
