Type: Performing Arts
Austin City Limits still remains as the main focal point of Austin live music scene, and is the longest running music series in the country. Initially created to celebrate the music of Texas--featuring western swing, Texas blues, Tejano music, progressive country, and rock n' roll--the series has gone on to feature regional, national and international artists performing a wide range of musical styles, including jazz, alternative country, alternative rock, folk music, and jam band. ACL just recently relocated from the University of Texas campus to the W Austin Hotel downtown. Tickets to tapings are free through a drawing on the main ACL website or you can purchase tickets to other performances that are held there almost nightly.
