Experience the 2017 Austin City Limits Music Festival

Whisper Valley’s excellent East Austin location puts our residents near all of the exciting festivals and fun things to do in Austin! As the “Live Music Capital of the World,” it’s fair to say the 2017 Austin City Limits Music Festival is going to be one of the biggest events of the year.

For two back-to-back weekends beginning Friday, Oct. 6, music lovers will head to Zilker Park for 140 artists, mouth-watering food, an art market and much more. To help you get ready for the 2017 Austin City Limits Music Festival, Whisper Valley is sharing some of the amazing things you’ll be able to see and experience this year.

2017 Austin City LimitsAll-Star Lineup

ACL 2017 will feature some of music’s biggest stars, including Jay-Z, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Chance the Rapper, The Killers and a wide variety of other artists and genres! The first festival weekend takes place Oct. 6-Oct. 8 and then second weekend picks up again Oct. 13-Oct. 15.

More than 75,000 people are expected to attend each day of the festival, so make sure to buy your tickets ahead of time and show up early. If you’ve already purchased a wristband, you can just head straight to the front gates and bypass the Box Office line. For more information about tickets, click here.

Come Hungry, Leave Happy

Austin isn’t just known for its music—some of the city’s most popular food trucks will be set up in Zilker Park during ACL, including Chi’lantro, The Peached Tortilla and Micklethwait Craft Meats—which provided the amazing BBQ at Whisper Valley’s Taste of East Austin event last month!

Amy’s Ice Creams and Torchy’s Tacos will also be in attendance, along with Kebabaque, Austin’s Pizza, Shake Shack, Peli Peli, Sno-Beach and much, much more.
