Austin City Limits Fest

The Austin City Limits Music Festival will feature artists from around the world this weekend and next, but there is a dearth of Latino and Latina fronted music acts. That grabbed the attention of ¡Ahora Si! editor Liliana Valenzuela, who says her Spanish language news publication has no reason to cover the festival this year.

From the Austin Monitor: Parks facilities in East Austin are likely to become host sites for a variety of large events in the coming years as the city looks to reduce the event schedule at its major urban core parks.

With the 15th annual Austin City Limits Music Festival underway, KUT's Nathan Bernier learns more about the origins of the festival from Chad Swiatecki, who interviewed the ACL fest founders for Austin Monthly Magazine.

Well, it’s here. The Austin City Limits Festival has kicked off at Zilker Park, and thousands of revelers have descended upon Austin. If you’re planning on avoiding the festival entirely, you’ve come to the right place.

Celebrating its 15th anniversary, the festival is likely to bring in as many as 450,000 attendees to Central Austin, according to estimates from C3 Presents, and traffic closures have already begun.

If you plan on getting anywhere near Zilker, you will likely be sucked into a giant, gnarled web of traffic.
