austin city limits

As thousands of music lovers pack into Zilker Metropolitan Park in Austin, TX, for the Austin City Limits (ACL) Music Festival taking place over two weekends in October, some people think up clever ways to bend the rules for certain things. This is the case of a Texas TikTok user who sneaked alcohol into the event.

Although this action is currently being regarded as "genius" by some people, this is completely against the ACL rules.

The countdown to next year's Austin City Limits began the moment this year's fest was over. After two weekends worth of delicious food, incredible performances and plenty of scandals, we weren't ready to say goodbye to our favorite music festival. Apparently we're not the only ones, because tickets for ACL 2020 are going on sale this week, less than two weeks since the end of this year's festival. 

Starting on Thursday, October 24 you can buy tickets for Austin City Limits 2020 for just $20. That's right, with tickets being cheaper now than they will for the rest of the year leading up to October, you might as well get your wallets ready. 3-Day General Admission tickets are only $250 in total, so with the layaway plan, you're paying just $20 per installment. And the 3-Day price will only increase from here on out!

We're still reeling from the epic first weekend of Austin City Limits, and we know you are too. There were insane crowds, epic performances (we’re looking at you Lizzo), and tons of celebrity spottings. This got us to thinking, well, where are all of the best places to spot celebs in Austin? Aside from the actual festival, of course.

Weekend 2 will be here before we know it, and this time you'll know exactly where to be to potentially see one of your favorite stars up close. Get to planning, because there are lots of places to hit up!

It should come as no surprise that Lizzo got the kind of crowd she did last night at Austin City Limits. Unfortunately, it seems like the only people who were shocked over it were the ones that decided Lizzo wouldn't get a headliner spot this year and therefore would perform on one of the smaller stages. As a result, people were getting trampled during Lizzo's ACL performance and are demanding she get a bigger stage for the festival's second and final weekend.

There's no doubt in our minds that Lizzo deserved better last night, as well as the thousands of people who came out to see her. According to her Instagram story, there were 60,000 people singing along to Truth Hurts, one of her most iconic songs, which couldn't have been safe for anyone gathered around such a small stage. No shade whatsoever towards Mumford and Sons, Cardi B, or Kasey Musgraves (who actually watched Lizzo's performance from backstage) but why wasn't Lizzo a headliner again?
