The Austin City Limits Music Festival is a large, outdoor music festival that takes place each fall at Zilker Park in Austin, Texas. ACL started in 2002 and each year features over 150 musicians, artists and bands. The three-day festival plays over two consecutive weekends and has the same headliners and top acts for each weekend. This format allows people to see dozens of their favorite bands or artists all in one location. ACL wristbands are typically for all 3 of days of the festival, however there are a limited number of single day tickets available.

There are eight stages across the park that ACL artists play on throughout the day. The stages include the AMD stage, Austin Kiddie Limits stage, Austin Ventures stage, the Barton Springs stage, BMI stage and the Honda stage. The gates on Friday open around Noon and the shows finish on Sunday night once the last headliner completes their set. Fans roam around the park listening to music from the myriad of different artists. There is also plenty of delicious food and beverages that are sold by some of Austin's coolest restaurants. There is a large beer garden with television sets for music fans who want to check their favorite football team while having a cold microbrew.

The music at ACL Festival is outstanding and tons of major artists have played, including: Arcade Fire, Beck, The Black Crowes, The Black Keys, Bob Dylan, Coldplay, Dave Matthews Band, Dixie Chicks, Dwight Yoakum, The Eagles, Foo Fighters, John Mayer, The Killers, Lionel Richie, Muse, Oasis, Pearl Jam, Phoenix, Queens of the Stone Age, REM, Robert Plant, String Cheese Incident, Tom Petty, Van Morrison, Widespread Panic, Wilco and Willie Nelson.
