ACL 2015 Line up and Ticket information
One of the perks of moving back to Austin is ACL and SXSW (and sometimes not with our horrible driving skills and traffic). What is the ACL (Austin City Limits) Festival? Only the best outdoor music festival that happens in Austin annually in October at Zilker Park. The ACL Music Festival has eight stages where musical groups from genres including rock, indie, country, folk, electronic and hip hop perform for fans. Approximately 75,000 people attend the festival each day. In addition to the music performances, there are food and drinks, an art market, a kids area for families, and other activities for attendees.*
This year the line up is fierce! The main headliners are Foo Fighters, Drake ,The Weekend and The Strokes... WHAT?! I have loved Dave Grohl since I was in high school and "Learn to Fly" dropped. Ever since then I have gone to a few concerts including being in the mosh pit (along with a little hearing lose). I have never seen the Strokes or Drake so I will be at those stages or at the beer booth. Here is official ACL line up for both weekends and you can buy your tickets here.
Also if you plan to attend sign up for the ACL E-List. Being a member of the ACL Festival E-List gives you some sweet perks. You’ll get official updates throughout the year, super-special deals, the inside line on Official Late Night Shows, contests, artist giveaways and much, much more.**
I'm sure you are wondering what does tech and ACL have in common? Simple there are usually tech booths all over the park and allot of tech goes into each stage set-up plus while the concert is going on (and don't forget the massive social media going on). If you would like to keep up with the festival I will be tweeting at https://twitter.com/nrpena throughout the events.
Hope to see some of my cutegeek fan there and my friends as well. This year looks like it will be Epic...CAN'T WAIT!
