My Unofficial ACL Band Guide

So for all of you lucky people going to the little festival here in Austin known as “ACL” this weekend and next, I thought I would make up a list of some of my personal “must see’s” to kind of help ya’ll out with bands that maybe you haven’t heard of.

I don’t know about ya’ll, but I personally love going to see bands I’ve never even heard of when I am at festivals like this. You discover so many great artists you wouldn’t otherwise!


Now of course this isn’t a full list of all the bands, although I know it’s quite a few, you can always go check out all of them on the official website which I linked below, along with all of the times and stages that the bands are playing at.

These are all my personal opinions, just a list of some of the bands I would love to see during ACL. LAter on during the week I thought I’d make a list of some of the “must try” food vendors that will be there as well, which for anyone coming in from out of town I highly recommend you check back for that one!
