Another year, another ACL Music Festival. This is a magical time in Texas, when the blazing summer makes way for a pleasant autumn. The weather and the promise of world-class musical wonders draws thousands to Zilker Park, ready to let loose and jam over the three day weekend. Here are some of the nice people we met on Day 1, Week 1.

Hey, once you see this, that means you made it! Have fun out there!

The Queen of ACL will greet you as you enter the gates.

The festival is fun for the kids...

... and for the kids at heart.

You'll see fans of Breaking Bad...

... and other forms of art.

More photos on the next page.

You'll meet really cool chicks...

... and more than a few crazy dudes.


... and cool homies.

You'll make best friends...

... and maybe find a soul mate.

Don't forget 'bout your crew!

Are you ready for Day Two? See you at the park!

Keep up with DC9 at Night on Twitter or Facebook.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
