Our ACL journey was totally rad. Mind if I tell you about it?
We are usually SXSW people, but this year we ventured to the infamous Austin City Limits.
The line up was just as hot as the temperatures outside. Well-known and underground artists gracing the same stages for 3 days of outdoor hippie bliss.
Our main attractions were HAIM (learn more about this sister trio in our AS feature), Grimes, Vampire Weekend, Arctic Monkeys and finally…
We have loved Local Natives for years. Unfortunately, in the past each time an opportunity has presented itself to see them live… something has always gotten in our way.
Not this time!
(excuse the cheesy thumbs up. I was clearly suffering from heat exhaustion + excitement)
These guys were totally rad and humble. It only deepened my appreciation for their music.
If you haven’t figured it out by now… I have a totally healthy obsession with these girls. HAIM has become a staple on my Spotify and the only vinyl I want to play.
You go girl
Grimes. What to say about Grimes? She’s not for the faint of heart or the severely dehydrated. So much dancing and spooky, funky, weird sounds all blended together by one blonde weirdo.
WE LOVED IT.
If you’ve never been to ACL, it’s a massive festival spanning 3 days across Zilker Park in Austin. It’s difficult to see everyone you want to see and want to be in the front? Forget about it!
But it’s an experience worth having and we would recommend it to anyone!
Check back later for some ACL tips and tricks we picked up along the way.
There is always more to come.
