Video: Backstage at ACL Saturday

The 11th Annual Austin City Limits is finally here! With performances by Red Hot Chili Peppers, Neil Young and Crazy Horse, The Black Keys, Jack White, The Avett Brothers, Iggy & The Stooges, The Roots, and so many more, it is sure to be an unforgettable weekend of music.

This weekend, over 100 different acts will perform at Austin Cit Limits. Not only that, festival goers will have a choice of approximately 40 different vendors serving all types of food and drink as well as tons of events and parties going on all over downtown Austin. You can expect delays around Zilker Park as about 70,000 people a day make their way to and from the ACL Festival.

The city is closing or reducing lanes around the park including Barton Springs Road from around MoPac to Robert E. Lee Road. The Texas Department of Public Safety says all available troopers will be out on the roads this weekend.

Roads will also be closed around Republic Square Park at 5th  Street and Guadalupe Street to make room for Capital Metro’s free ACL Shuttle.

Whether you’re at the festival or not, KUT will be out at Zilker park all weekend capturing the ACL experience for you.

We had some great acts come by the tent for exclusive interviews. Check out our full ACL coverage, here.
