Kicking the first weekend off with Outkast and Beck headling down in Austin, Texas. Who could ask for anything better?
It’s only the first night, and man, is the line up stacked. To start the weekend off we have Temples, Bleachers, Capital Cities, CHVRCHES, and Sam Smith (just to name a few). It truly is amazing how the festival has grown to now spanning over two weekends for the second year with over 130 performances. Sounds like another perfect festival to add to the list, and incase you’re missing out on all the fun, fear not. Tonight at 10pm eastern time, PBS will be premiering a look at the past forty years of ACL, featuring many special performances.
Thank you, Alt J, for the quick release of your second album, This Is All Yours.
I was lucky enough to see Alt J headline last December, and here is a bit of what I saw:
The performance was nothing less of perfection. The beautiful and unique sound literally sent An Awesome Wave through me leaving me on a concert high for days, and I couldn’t ask for anything more…except another chance to see them.
P.S. Who are you excited to see in concert his year?
A teenager’s first concert and first festival. Things to never be forgotten. Ever. Music is all that matters to a teenage girl, right? I mean after boys, tanning, and hair straightening.
In a nutshell, when all these material things are gone, music stays; It brings people together, and it inspires. Marcus Haney’s documentary about “sneaking in and breaking out” truly reveals how music can capture the hearts of many.
So, what’s the best concert/festival you’ve ever been to?
