Oct 4 - 6 & 11 - 13, 2013 - Get ready for the most explosive music festival of the year! This extravaganza brings together new musicians and familiar performing artists for one weekend of unforgettable music.

What

The ACL fest is the biggest festival in Texas (and remember, that's a big place). The ACL lineup has included bands and performers who've already made their mark like Van Morrison, Oasis, and Sheryl Crow. They've rocked the stage along with newcomers like Matt Nathanson and some excellent local talent. For up-and-comers, the festival can be their big break.

Be sure to bring your camera. ACL Festival organizers are offering prizes for the best pictures taken during the weekend.
