2021 ACL Festival Dates
ACL 2021 is the 20th year of the famous Music Festival held in the heart of downtown Austin, Texas at Zilker Park. Although it'll be the 19th time the amazing festival has occurred, since the 2020 edition was cancelled. ACL 2021 will be as popular as any year in its history, since no fans got to attend last year, and we expect to see strong demand for ACL wristbands for both weekends. Fans who decide to buy ACL 2021 tickets should consider securing tickets early because in 2019 the demand for tickets peaked in the two weeks leading up to the festival which sent the prices way up (in particular for Weekend One).
The 2021 ACL dates are October 1-3 for Weekend One and October 8-10 for Weekend Two. Tickets for both weekends will be available here, so buy with confidence knowing you are working with local Austin company who has handled passes for every ACL Festival going back to the first one.
Austin City Limits Festival Tickets
ACL Fest is an outdoor music festival that takes place each fall at Zilker Park in Austin, Texas. The three-day festival plays over two consecutive weekends with the same headliners and lineup generally playing both weekends.
It started in 2002 and each year features over 150 musicians, artists and bands. There are eight stages across the park that ACL artists play on throughout the day. The gates on Friday open around Noon and the shows finish on Sunday night once the last headliner completes their set. There is plenty of delicious food and beverages that are sold by some of Austin's coolest restaurants.
TicketCity is located in Austin and has offered ACL Festival wristbands for sale each year. Fans can purchase an ACL 3-day wristband, or buy single day wristbands for Friday, Saturday or Sunday. Single day or three-day passes are available for both Weekend One and Weekend Two of the festival.

ACL was cancelled in 2020, so the most recent lineup we have to share came from 2019 ACL. In 2019, the Festival headliners included Guns N' Roses, Mumford & Sons, Childish Gambino, The Cure, Billie Eilish, and Tame Impala. Many of those headliners delivered performances that had the crowd at Zilker Park buzzing. Although the show that everyone was talking about was Lizzo, who many ACL veterans say had the biggest crowd they had ever witnessed. Kacey Musgraves and Lauren Daigle also put on acclaimed performances at ACL 2019. We look forward to seeing an amazing number of performance at ACL 2021.
