“Music is coming back strong to the Live Music Capital of the World,” said Austin Mayor Steve Adler, addressing the on-going COVID-19 pandemic. “The return of Austin City Limits as an in-person festival celebrates that our efforts as a community to become vaccinated are working. Health and safety remain our top priority, and we will work closely with the organizers and Austin Public Health to ensure ACL Fest is in line with our health standards. We must continue to get everyone vaccinated and keep up our success.”
Updated May 21, 2021 9:36AM: Within less than three hours after announcing the 2021 lineup for ACL’s 20th anniversary return, 3-Day tickets for both weekends of the Austin City Limits festival have completely sold out.
“After an incredibly challenging year for the Austin community, artists, crews and the music industry in general, today’s sell out is a resounding message that fans are ready to gather safely and to see live music again. We are really excited to see this lineup in person and to reunite in Zilker Park this October,” said Amy Corbin, Promoter, C3 Presents.
