The Austin City Limits Music Festival held in Austin, Texas brings big name acts and new talent to the city. Music fans from all over the country come to Austin for this event. Austin City Limits 2010 will be held from October 8-10th at Zilker Park.
Austin City Limits 2010 Lineup
Some of the bands that I am most excited to see include Muse, The Strokes, Vampire Weekend, Devendra Banhart, Blind Pilot and First Aid Kit. An official list of scheduled performers can be found on the Austin City Limits website. Their site has a handy Facebook feature that allows you to share and comment on the shows you want to see. This is a great way to create your own personal lineup and organize meet up times with friends.
