ACL Festival 2021 Dates Announced

AH!, there’s a glimmer of hope for concerts and music festivals.

As things stand right now, the Austin City Limits Music Festival is set to return to Zilker Park as an in-person experience this October.
Last year’s festival was dropped due to COVID-19 and ended up as a virtual online event on Youtube, but in a brief statement on ACL’s website, organizers shared their plans to push ahead for an in-person event this year.
“We can’t wait to see you Oct. 1-3 & 8-10, 2021 back in Zilker Park,” the statement reads.
“Until then, stay safe, take care of each other,” it added while encouraging people to sign up for updates about this year’s festival. Tickets are not yet on sale.

This year’s ACL signifies the 20th anniversary of the legendary festival just outside of downtown Austin.
People who purchased tickets for last year’s festival before it was canceled could hang on to them, ACL earlier said, to “lock-in access to (the 2021) festival at 2019 prices.”
The 2020 festival was a virtual event held from Oct. 9-11 and featured free performances of famous sets from ACLs in the past. It featured performances from musicians such as Paul McCartney, Radiohead, and Willie Nelson.
If it does go ahead, this year’s festival would provide a much-needed roar for the local area. In 2019, it brought $291 million into the Austin market.
Organizations of large-scale events in Texas have expressed optimism that such events could return to normal by the fall.

With the state of Covid-19 vaccinations being administered on a large scale, this very much is more than just a dream for music lovers everywhere. It very much is a viable possibility.

So for now, hang tight until more details emerge!
