Austin City Limits Music Festival Coming September 16

Music lovers in Austin have a real treat coming to town, and it’s only a few months away. The Austin City Limits Music Festival will be in town September 16 through 18 at Zilker Park. 130 bands are lined up for the festival, featuring many favorite musical artists. While 2011’s complete lineup has not yet been released, new additions are being added constantly, and if you go by last year’s lineup—which included The Flaming Lips, MIA, The Strokes, Norah Jones, Blues Traveler, The Eagles, Phish, and dozens more—then it’s sure to be an event not to be missed.

2011 also marks the big ten year anniversary of the festival, so there are sure to be some incredible acts lined up. I have heard that Arcade Fire will be there, but I’m not sure if that’s been confirmed yet or not. To find out which acts will be playing, you can play Lineup Lottery up until the event.

In addition to the music, the festival is also known for its varied activities—such as rock and recycle and many different promotional tents where you can try out or purchase goods and services from companies like State Farm and Honda. Lots of food sellers will also be available, including beer, burgers, ice cream, pizza, bistro items, and many more munchies at the food court.
