    They have both toured a bit over the last five years so if you are a casual fan or only want to hear the old stuff you probably got your fill already. I know I did.

    Is this ACL's first year doing two weekends?

    Not really. Same conflict came last year during their one weekend.

    They had big screens across the place showing the game during the afternoon.

    2013 is the year of the festival
    Outside of Coachella 2014 will be a letdown compared to this year

    It would've been if The White Stripes and Amy Winehouse wouldn't have cancelled.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    And Bob Dylan was fucking terrible. It was Rodriguez-at-Coachella-esque.

    Also, lawn chairs ain't going anywhere. Easily the worst thing about ACL.

    Also agreed.

    However, in the cause of a balanced opinion: I have seen Wilco probably 10 times over the years, and the 07 set at ACL is probably my favorite. god damn they killed it that night. As did LCD Soundsystem, who played a late afternoon set in broad daylight -- it was fucking amazing.

    yeah no one cared. all we UT fans care about during major music events is whether we win or lose, not how its done. and even then, we just adjust beer intake accordingly.

    That conflict with M.I.A. sucked. They were two of the acts I was most looking forward to seeing. Fortunately, Arcade Fire and LCD scheduled a show in Kansas City two weeks after the fest, so I saw M.I.A. Her show was fun.

    My friend told me that there is a smoking ban, and you would have to smoke outside the festival.
    FYI - he went last year.

    This.

    I've went the past three years, and the first was the only one in which I didn't have to put out a cigarette (or leave the festival). They are definitely on the lookout for it, especially after 2011 and the major drought/wildfires that occurred in the area.

    Wildfires are a legitimate reason to ban it. Big fires happened near LA recently and it was from someone throwing a cigarette butt out his car window.

  23. #173

    Default Re: Austin City Limits 2013

    But that's been happening for years, and nobody's banned smoking in cars.

    I'm not familiar with this festival. Is it particularly overgrown? Is there vegetation that can easily catch fire? The most "overgrown" festival I know of (in terms of ground cover) is bonnaroo, and I can't see that kind of grass starting a wildfire, even if it was dry.

    It is in a park. The park sits on the side of a river and has grass and trees and stuff. It is comparable to Bonnaroo, except Texas is in the middle of a drought.

    But banning smoking is overkill. It is another victory for the puritans who will latch onto any excuse to make a vice illegal.

    In Austin smoking is banned in all city parks. Zilker park is a city park. ACL happens in zilker park.

    With that being said i smoke bud in zilker park, surrounding parks and areas every weekend.

    I have gone to ACL 6 years now and no one has ever said anything to me or people im with about smoking, we do not smoke cigarettes though.

    the chairs do suck but they can not go past a certain point close to the stage. At the end of the night i just go godzilla out of the pit area through chairs.

    how's public transit getting to Zilker park? is the light rail a viable option?

    edit: looks like the free shuttle is the way to go.
