Summer is hopefully coming to a close in the next few weeks, and along with that comes the start of festival season here in Austin!! Here is our list of must see shows/festivals in the coming months here in Austin.
ACL (Austin City Limits) October 2nd-4th & 9th-11th - This years lineup is pretty stellar, and with the new 2 weekend setup, you don't have any excuse for missing some great bands. We are going to be sure and make it out to see Sturgill Simpson, Florence + The Machine, Austin's own Gary Clarke Jr. The Decemberists, TV On The Radio, Shaky Graves, and the up and coming Leon Bridges! Be sure to check out Leon Bridges Instagram account if you haven't already, it is PHENOMENAL!!
Pecan Street Festival September 26th & 27th - Pecan Street Festival is always a good time here in Austin. The streets are filled with local art, crafts, fried food and cold beer which is pretty hard to mess up, but the folks who put on this festival really know how to throw a good party and really set themselves apart from the pack! This year we are looking forward to sinking our teeth into a savory turkey leg, a sweet and messy funnel cake, and then taking in the sounds of The Gary and more on the Red River Stage.
Texas Monthly BBQ Festival November 1st - Tickets go on sale September 11th for this wonderful festival of smoked meats, so jump out ahead of the crowd and be sure you lock in your seat at the feeding trough! We will definitely be there scarfing down anything and everything we can coming off the hot pits of glory.
