The long-awaited, iconic Austin City Limits music festival is ready to come back in-person this October with Weekend One tickets going on sale at noon Thursday.

The two-weekend festival will kick off with Weekend One on Oct. 1-3 in Zilker Park. The lineup will also be revealed tomorrow at 10 a.m., ahead of ticket sales. General admission tickets are $275 per weekend.

The festival promises all the attractions you've been missing:

  • Over 130 bands on 8 stages over three days
  • Bars and a variety of local food vendors
  • Festival merch and specialty items from art vendors throughout the park
  • Austin Kiddie Limits for children under 10 to enjoy the fun
ACL has not released any further information on COVID precautions. In February, before the CDC and the City of Austin gave clearance for fully vaccinated to gather, Austonia reached out to ACL officials who couldn't identify how exactly the festival would be held but that it would return in person. "We remain in communication with local officials and will offer updates through our website and social media when we have more information to share. Of course, the health and safety of our fans, artists, staff and community is our number one priority and planned for accordingly," said Fresh and Clean Media Director of Publicity Sandee Fenton.
Tickets for the festival can be bought here. American Express card members get early access.

This story has been updated to include when the lineup will be revealed.
