Five Reasons ACL Is Going To Rule This Year

As you might have heard, Austin City Limits, every music lover’s favorite October festival, recently announced its lineup for 2015 and there are some real gems on the list. Of course, any reason to visit Austin is a good reason, whether it be for South by Southwest in March, or simply to go swimming in the beautiful Barton Springs. But ACL is hands down your best opportunity to hear a lot of really phenomenal music in a chilled out, end-of-summer atmosphere. The vibe at ACL remains so great every year because the festival has managed to avoid corporatization. That means that you can still enjoy your cheap beer, ride your bicycle, and check out the local hippie babes, all while rocking out to some of the most talented music acts in the world today. I am particularly excited to see Chance the Rapper, Bassnectar, Tame Impala, The Decemberists, and Father John Misty share a stage. The festival takes place in the first two weeks of October. Will you be there?
