ACL will be returning to an in-person event this year after the festival went virtual in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

ACL is one of the largest outdoor music events in Texas and regularly draws hundreds of thousands of people to Austin, according to a previous report from the Texas Tribune.

This year ACL will take place October 1-3 and 8-10 at Austin’s Zilker Park. Three-day tickets go on sale Thursday, May 20, at noon.

Single-day general admission tickets will be available later in the year.
