Weather

Although the average high in Austin for the last two weeks of September is 88 degrees Fahrenheit, recently the event has endured above average temperatures and humidity. The highs for 2004 during the festival were 96, 96, and 93. In 2005 the highs were 98, 99, and 108. Temperatures reached 98, 99, and 90 in 2006. ACL has worked with the City of Austin to install a massive irrigation system to eliminate dust concerns during the Festival. In 2006 they also targeted dust patches by putting mulch on them, ending almost all of the dust problems. Tents and other stations have been set up and equipped with fan misters. Organizers do not want to move the festival into October due to conflicts with hotel room availability on UT football weekends, increased chance of rain, and the reduced chance of booking bands on summer tour.

Location advantages

Austin City Limits is the must-see event in Texas for rock, indie, blues, world/ethnic contemporary and traditional, reggae, eclectic, fusion, electronic, soul, folk/Americana and almost all other music fans. Major metropolitan areas Dallas, San Antonio and Houston are each within a 3 hour drive of Austin and have no similar events. After selling 75,000 tickets on Saturday in 2004, organizers capped attendance at 65,000 for 2005 (the cap was met on Saturday and Sunday). While a trip to Bonnaroo or the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival most likely involves camping, Austin has plentiful cheap hotel rooms and Zilker Park is in the middle of the city, so people can visit the Nature City and its gardens, the botanical gardens, Barton Springs pool to swim/have heat relief and relax, hike and bike trail, river - and rent a canoe or kayak or float on a raft or other boat. There are also beach volley ball courts and a fun rock formation in Zilker park that many people enjoy during the festival when they are converted to open tents with fans and misters to provide heat relief and a place to lounge/relax.

Ben Kweller at the Austin City Limits Music Festival, 2006
  • Ben Kweller suffered a nosebleed during his set. He attempted to stem the flow by inserting a tampon, thrown to him by an audience member, into his nostril. The tampon expanded painfully and then he removed it. Kweller performed two more songs until he had to leave the stage.[2] The next day when The Flaming Lips performed, lead singer Wayne Coyne asked the audience to throw tampons at him to help mop up his signature fake blood. It continued to rain tampons on the band for well over two songs.
