Austin City Limits organizers cancel 2020 festival, announce 2021 dates
Austin City Limits (ACL) organizers will not move forward with the 2020 festival, slated for October 2 – 4 and 9 – 11 in Zilker Park, Texas, due to health concerns related to coronavirus. In a statement published on ACL’s official website, organizers maintained that canceling the 2020 event was the “only responsible solution.” The news follows the recent spike in confirmed cases in the state.
In the announcement, organizers specified that ACL will return to Zilker Park from October 1 – 3 and 8 – 10 of 2021 for its 20th anniversary. Ticket holders will have the option to keep their passes for the 2021 edition, but may alternatively request a refund if they cannot attend. All current ticket holders will receive an email from Front Gate Tickets with information on both options soon, according to the announcement.
