Austin City Limits Music Festival Sells Out in Record Time – Features Red Hot Chili Peppers, Florence + The Machine
The 11th installment of the Austin City Limits Music Festival has officially sold out. The first batch of “early bird” passes went in a flash last September after ACL 2011. The remaining three-day passes were snapped up on Tuesday by ACL’s loyal e-list members who took the time to verify their email addresses and received special access for the 24-hour pre-sale. When the remaining three-day passes were gone, e-listers got the first crack at single-day tickets, selling out Friday and Saturday passes before the sale opened up to the public on Wednesday at 10am. A limited number of VIP Passes, Platinum Passes and Travel Packages are still available while supplies last.
On October 12-14, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Neil Young and Crazy Horse, The Black Keys, Jack White, Florence + The Machine, and many more will transform Zilker Park into a veritable music extravaganza. In addition to the 130-plus bands on the bill, the ACL Festival will showcase some of the best eats in Austin, local arts, vital non-profit partners at ACL cares, and dozens of kid friendly activities at the Austin Kiddie Limits Stage.
Austin City Limits is the longest-running music series in American television history and remains the only TV series to ever be awarded the National Medal of Arts. The historic KLRU Studio 6A, home to 36 years of ACL concerts, has been designated an official Rock & Roll Landmark. In 2011, ACL moved to the new venue ACL Live at The Moody Theater in downtown Austin. The show continues to air weekly on PBS stations nationwide and episodes are made available online.
