Austin City Limits normally takes place in Zilker Park in October but was canceled this year due to the pandemic. However, it will be putting on a virtual festival.

For those still mourning the loss of Austin City Limits 2020, fear not, as the festival goes digital this year.

Though no dates or lineups have been announced, Emmett Beliveau, a spokesperson for Austin-based company C3 Presents, announced Tuesday, ACL will take a virtual form this year during a livestream for HAAM day, an annual fundraiser benefiting the Health Alliance of Austin Musicians.


"We are working on a very special virtual festival weekend for all of you," Beliveau said on the livestream.

While Beliveau instructed the audience to keep an eye on the ACL website for further information, no update has been posted as of 2 p.m. today.

Sandee Fenton, director of publicity for Fresh and Clean Media and C3, said there is no news as of yet but "details are coming soon."

Although a virtual festival of this size seems like a tall order, C3 already helped put on a virtual Lollapalooza from July 30 to Aug. 2. The event featured big names like Alabama Shakes, Chance the Rapper, Brockhampton, Lorde, Paul McCartney and Austin's own Gary Clark Jr.

While an in-person ACL is out of the question this year, ACL still plans to return in-person in 2021.

Before the pandemic started, Adult Care of Austin on Menchaca Road didn't offer telemedicine appointments.

Now, the private practice conducts almost all of its visits virtually, either over the phone or on HIPAA-compliant video platforms.

Dr. Steven Dobberfuhl, an internal medicine physician, said telemedicine saved his practice—and has been a boon to his patients, around 75% of whom are 65 years or older and at high risk of contracting COVID-19.

"I didn't believe it would work as well as it has," he said.
