Austin City Limits Will Be Two Weekends in 2013
A scene from Austin City Limits 2011
Good news, everyone! Earlier today, The Statesman broke down Austin City Limits Music Fest's new, extra special bonus deal with C3 Presents (the ACL producers): starting in fall 2013, the festival will have an extra special additional weekend. According to our sister paper in Houston, the possible dates are Oct. 4-6 and Oct. 11-13. Which means you'll be able to go to Austin City Limits, and then go to Austin City Limits again.Two buttery weekends of indie rockin', head-bobbing and bad ass food trucks. Also, the opportunity to see dudes in banana costumes. Also, those "Keep Dallas Pretentious" shirts.
An important note, from the Statesman:
Neighborhood groups near Zilker Park were worried that that idea hadn't been vetted thoroughly enough to consider the parking, traffic and noise impacts
Oh, yes, that part [shudders imagining the traffic]. For Dallas citizens, the other, possibly exciting notion to keep in mind: spillover. A range of interesting bands will be making stops. Dallas may be looking at an exciting few weeks of October 2013 shows.
So, what does everyone think? Two weekends of ACL: overkill or a big ol' boat of awesome?
