This just in: Tickets and 3-day passes for October’s Austin City Limits Festival are going on sale tomorrow at 10am. These things sold out real quick like last year, so head to the ACL website and make a purchase. Passes for all 3 days are going for $185 with all fees included in that price.
Really, I love Fun Fun Fun Festival. I will readily stand up to the masses and argue about how much better FFF is in comparison to Austin City Limits. But, as with all festivals, there will inevitably be some sort of let down that leaves you frustrated. While I think some of these may be a bit obvious, there are others that definitely need to be brought into the forefront.
Even with Austin City Limits Festival in the forefront of the weekend, many of the major acts found their way to the University of Texas campus to tape an episode of the Austin City Limits television show. One of the groups making their ACL debut in front of the famed Austin backdrop was Gnarls Barkley on Saturday night. Show review and setlist after the jump.
By this point in time, we’ve all heard about Hot Chip many times before, or at least I hope they have done a fly-by on your radar. Well, this bunch of Brits are here to brighten up your ACL experience on Friday afternoon. Expect this to be a hot-spot for those in the know, and since I’ve alerted you, you are now one of those privileged people! Grab more info after the jump.
The Austin City Limits website has announced a whole bunch of new after shows. The Black Keys, Manu Chao, Okkervil River, and several other big names have dates up for post festival parties. If you check out the C3 website, they are currently offering an exclusive pre-sale to all of these shows.
