ACL 2021 returns October 1-3, 8-10, 2021: Tickets

The “live music capital of the world” is back, baby! Austin, Texas, has been home to the legendary music festival, Austin City Limits, since 2002. The bill consistently caters to a vast audience of Austin locals and international music lovers. People come for the delicious eats, cold drinks, and festive beats.

Zilker Park is transformed into a huge five-stage arena for three days of non-stop sets for the first two weekends of October. There’s truly something for everyone at ACL. The younger crowd can have fun at the fest’s Kiddie Limits, the teens can shop local small boutiques, and the true festival veterans can cool off at the several beverage booths. Whether you’re camping out the barricade for your favorite artist or you’re after a more laid-back vibe, you’re bound to have a great time in Austin.

After 2020’s cancellation due to the pandemic, the 2021’s lineup announcement definitely didn’t disappoint. Sets from George Strait, Miley Cyrus, Megan the Stallion, Doja Cat, and Jack Harlow are sure to pull huge crowds and immaculate sounds to celebrate the anticipated return of the festival. 

The first day of the festival starts strong with performances by Austin’s own, Black Pumas, the ethereal and otherworldly voice of Moses Sumney, and ends with the explosive sets from Megan Thee Stallion and Miley Cyrus. 

Miley Cyrus has been listening to the cries of nostalgia from fans and has created a setlist to reminisce and sing along. We’re looking forward to losing our voices singing to the iconic teen anthems of our childhood. Which hit are you most excited to scream?

Tina Snow returns to Austin City Limits after a momentous year full of hits and dance anthems. We are limbering up and getting ready for Megan Thee Stallion’s energetic set, ready to sweat, dance, and be hot. Her outfits and dancers never disappoint, providing the perfect space to let go and release your inner hot girl. 

The Grammy-nominated Black Pumas are an insanely talented psychedelic soul band right out of Austin, Texas. Their addictive sounds and smooth lyrics give fans a timeless experience that will have you dancing the whole set. You can trust them to give everything they have in each song’s performance.   

Moses Sumney is certain to take the crowd on a divine journey. Every note that comes out of his mouth lingers in your ears, backed up with immaculate production. The melodies performed by Sumney are nothing short of angelic and cinematic. Just when you think he’s shown you his range, he immediately surprises you.

Saturday continues the momentum with leading ladies Billie Eilish and Doja Cat, both coming off huge albums. Billie Eilish is returning to Zilker Park after her album, Happier Than Ever, stunned fans. Meanwhile, Doja Cat joins after another major breakout year and album, Planet Her. These ladies are always about production and amazing stage presence, so we couldn’t be more excited to see what’s up their sleeves. We’re expecting nothing less than peak creativity from these massive talents. Before the end of the second day, we’re excited to see fellow songstresses, funky pop icons, Remi Wolf, and Grammy-nominated and multitalented Amber Mark.

We’re expecting LA’s Remi Wolf to bring all kinds of creativity and energy. Her playful, witty lyrics matched with her quirky, fun production will have the crowds dancing in the Austin sun. See you there! Woo!

Last but certainly not least, Sunday, the last day of ACL. Don’t fret, friends, because the talent and energy do not stop. We have Tyler the Creator, Greta Van Fleet, Tierra Whack, and Channel Tres. All gas, no brakes. 

Tyler the Creator brings his anticipated album performance ‘Call Me If You Get Lost’ to the ACL main stage. The color, the theatrics, the talent, the energy…what’s not to love? You definitely need to make this set.

Greta Van Fleet belongs on an Austin stage. The classic rock routes are bringing fans out excited for extravagant vocals and hard-hitting melodies. Their vintage style and big stage presence are sure to please. Are you ready to rock? 

Tierra Whack is another artist returning to Austin City Limits, and we are so grateful. Between the energy with the crowd and immaculate style – this set should be at the top of your list. Her witty wordplay and experimental beats leave you captivated by the whole performance. 

Singer and producer Channel Tres will be providing the electric grooves we need to finish the fest strong. His creativity and approach to producing are sought after by major artists– some are even on the bill! If you come to dance, this set will give it to you. 

There are countless reasons to attend Austin City Limits this year. The music, the food trucks, the art, and above all, the people make ACL the legendary event it is. Their effort to make the festival as safe as possible to attend should be noticed and celebrated! We hope to see you there. Buy tickets here!
