SURPRISE! Austin City Limits 2017- Let’s Do This!

Scroll down to content


My Friday night took a very unexpected turn when I found out I won tickets to Austin City Limits this fall. Stunned, jaw-on-the-floor surprised. My work had a raffle and I was selected as one of the lucky winners! Still can’t believe it.

If you’re not familiar, Austin City Limits is a three day festival in Austin, Texas that takes over two weekends in Zilker Park (Weekend 1: Oct. 6-8 and Weekend 2: October 13-15).

Austin City Limits Festival in 2016 was my first ever music festival experience and I’m so completely excited to return. I hadn’t paid much attention to the lineup prior (because I didn’t plan on attending) but have since navigated my way through the hefty three day funpalooza of music & food and think I have plan… We’ll see… If not, I’ve got a month to get one…

This year’s festival has some massive acts, can’t wait to see a few favorites and check out some new upcoming talent. Full lineup below:
