ACL Music Festival Headliners

Both legendary acts and newly emerging artists took to the eight stages of the 12th annual Austin City Limits Music Festival in Austin’s Zilker Park.  Because of it’s growing success, the festival has now grown to two almost identical weekends filled with jam packed live music performances.  October 4, 2013 marked the first festival weekend and despite the threat of showers, the scorching Texas sun blazed and Austin temperatures topped 90 degrees.
