Austin City Limits Tickets Go on Sale Today
It seems like only yesterday that South by Southwest took over Austin, but already it's time to start prepping for Austin City Limits. The 10th anniversary music festival is set to hit Zilker Park September 16 to 18, but single-day tickets go on sale today at 10 a.m. CST.
All of the three-day passes have sold out, so this is your only opportunity to snag tickets to see such acts Stevie Wonder, Arcade Fire, Kanye West—is there an event that this guy doesn't perform?—Coldplay, My Morning Jacket, Cee Lo, Fleet Foxes, Alison Krauss & Union Station, Nas and Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley, Bright Eyes, Empire of the Sun, Cut Copy, Santigold and Social Distortion.
ACL is definitely gaining serious cred with this year's group of musicians. The lineup of more than 130 acts is filled with big-name headliners, making Austin City Limits a contender against other musical festival heavyweights like Lollapalooza.
For those coveted single-day tickets, buy 'em online. They will cost $90 apiece, and the fest doesn't charge service fees or anything like that (take a note, Ticketmaster). The fest also offers some hotel, ticket and swag packages for out-of-towners that you can find here.
