      The Austin City Limits (ACL) Music Festival is an annual music festival held in Zilker Park in Austin, Texas on two consecutive three-day weekends. Inspired by the PBS concert series of the same name, the reputation of the ACL television show helped contribute to the success of the first festival.

      The ACL Music Festival is known for it's many stages, where musical groups from genres including rock, indie, country, folk, electronic and hip hop perform.

      Founded in 2002, the festival began as a one-weekend event and remained as such through the 2012 date. On August 16, 2012, Austin City Council members voted unanimously to allow the Austin City Limits Music Festival to expand to two consecutive weekends beginning in 2013.

      The historic Austin City Limits television series focused for many years on Texas singer/songwriters, country and folk performers, and instrument specialists. That has changed as the award-winning television series now resembles the Festival lineup and spotlights artists of every musical genre from rhythm and blues to rock, jazz, and alternative. Now that the festival is an established destination, it brings major bands to the television show that might not otherwise have made the trip. In past years, Pearl Jam, My Morning Jacket, Wilco and The National have all performed for both the festival and the show.

      Over its yearly, two week festivities, Austin City Limits has featured artists like Tegan and Sara, The Flaming Lips, Muse, Bjork, The Eagles, M.I.A., the Weeknd, Radiohead, Drake, Gorillaz, Jay Z, Kendrick Lamar, Metallica, Mos Def, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Chance the Rapper, Jack White, Pixies, Run the Jewels, R.E.M., and more!
