Austin City Limits Music Festival has announced that it will no longer be holding this year’s event. Due to a sudden spike in COVID-19 cases, organizers felt it would be best to push back the event to 2021. As the statement states:

“We would have loved to put on another memorable show this year, however, with the uncertainty surrounding the current situation in Texas, this decision is the only responsible solution. The health and safety of our fans, artists, partners, staff, and the entire Austin community remains our highest priority.”

The Austin music event will return to Ziker Park on October 1st – 3rd and October 8th – 10th, 2021. Current ticket holders have the option to keep their passes so they can roll over for next year’s event. However, for those who will not be able to attend the 20th anniversary festival, refunds will be made available. An email will be sent to all ticket holders with information on the next coming steps.

Austin City Limits Music Festivals leaves fans with an important message:

“ACL Fest has always been rooted in tradition, our common love of live music, and our community. This includes supporting Austin Parks Foundation for the past 15 years to improve parks and green spaces across the city. Take your time to maintain your personal health and wellness by visiting to learn how you can safely enjoy and support parks in our area, and please continue to follow the advice of local officials, look out for each other, and stay safe.”
