Thousands of people will flood Zilker Park over the next two weekends to experience Austin City Limits Festival, wandering from stage to stage to experience as much live music as they can cram into each day.
While Austin is home to many festivals (and seems to grow new ones every day), Austin City Limits Festival has a different vibe. Fest goers include people of all ages; some are chair people and others are wanderers; some stake out front row spots at headliner shows and others wander the edges of the many different stages, and still others just lay down in the grass to take a midday nap while music plays around them.
Do you think you can capture the spirit of what makes ACL Fest special with your camera? It’s time to find out!
Starting with the first day of Austin City Limits Festival, you can begin submitting photos for our #SpiritofACL photo contest! We’ll accept submissions over both weeks of the festival, and then open it up to voting from you and everyone you know.
The first place winner will receive a commemorative ACL Fest poster autographed by of the bands who visit with our writers during the fest as many as we can get. The second place winner will receive one print of their choice from our staff photographer’s photos of ACL Fest 2014.
