So the Austin City Limits Music Festival 2013(ACL) was the first time that ACL had been split into two weekends.
The first weekend sold out, almost instantly even though both weekends had the same bands playing.
The first weekend went according to plan, and it was very hot.
The second weekend on the other hand got a bit iffy. On Friday there was a 10 minute thunderstorm during Queens of the Stone Age. Other than that it was clear. Then on Saturday it was clear all day, until around 10, whenever Kings of Leon came on for the encore. Then on Sunday, sadly, the concert was cancelled due to flooding.
What this means to festival goers of Weekend 2 is not only that they won’t get a sunburn, but also they can’t see The National, Noah and the Whale, Tame Impala, Franz Ferdinand, Atoms for Peace, Grouplove, Dawes, Foxygen, Toro y Moi, Phoenix, Divine Fits, and Lionel Richie to name a few.
This is the first time that ACL has cancelled due to rain. Refunds be issued to compensate for the missing day.
