As is the case with its sister festival Lollapalooza in Illinois, Austin City Limits is returning with a full capacity two-weekend event later this year. ACL marks its 20th anniversary this October 1-3 and October 8-10 at Zilker Park in Austin, Texas.
Texas music legend George Strait will also take a turn headlining ACL, with other notable acts on the bill including Modest Mouse, Greta Van Fleet, Black Pumas, DaBaby, Freddie Gibbs, Future Islands, Band Of Horses, Bleachers, Moses Sumney, 070 Shake, Channel Tres, Omar Apollo, Hinds, KennyHoopla, and Remi Wolf.
Tickets to ACL 2021 go on sale today (May 20) from 6pm BST (12pm CT). Ticket options include: three-day general admission ($275); four-day general admission+ ($550); four-day VIP ($1,300), and four-day platinum ($3,800).
Those attending ACL will receive “regular updates with important information regarding safety policies and procedures before entering Zilker Park”, festival producers C3 Presents said (via Consequence Of Sound), though there was no mention in the lineup announcement of any particular COVID-19 safety protocols.
ACL is one of hundreds of US festivals planning to run this year amid the coronavirus pandemic.
