Everyone in Austin has mixed feelings about ACL, the annual mega-fest that takes place at Zilker Park every year. It’s insanely crowded and hot but this year, the lineup was too good ot pass up. I ate a total of 4 P. Terry’s veggie burgers, got two distinctive sunburns, applied 4 layers of mosquito repellent, acquired 10 mosquito bites anyway, cried 3 times, and lost my voice just once.
Buzzing off the success of their singles “XO” and “Talk to Me”, the duo Nightly, has performed at a few shows throughout the country as well as an appearance at Bonnaroo. Jonathan Capecia from the duo took some time to talk to us about their tour and new plans.
Whether you’re heading to the beach for Hangout Fest or the campgrounds at Bonnaroo, you have to prep for festivals. Here are some of out favorite things to keep in our bags.
Sound on Sound is the cool kid of the Austin festivals. If every basic you know went to ACL, you were there at Sound on Sound.
This year as I overcame my constant social anxiety and journeyed to ACL, I couldn’t help but feel….frustrated. I love a good festival, I really do. This year ACL’s lineup seemed highly done before. I’ve seen most of these bands a good 4 or 5 times this year (except you Radiohead). However, the weather was nice, I had applied 10 layers of sunblock and was ready to hit the crowds.
When BØRNS took the stage at Austin City Limits last year he must have known he was right on the cusp of being a star. His magnetism on stage, yellow floral jacket, and perfect hair made him one of the most memorable performers at the massive festival…
Austin City Limits, it’s hard to tell what the defining festival of the year is but this is definitely one of them. This year’s line-up was spectacular. This festival is so great mainly because it’s in the fall and the weather is so nice in Austin. These videos aren’t from the festival but just live performances I enjoyed so you get the same vibes.
