ACL Fest organizers say they’re prepared for rain
Organizers of the Austin City Limits Music Festival say they’re prepared for the rain expected tonight and early tomorrow.
The National Weather Service says between .75 and 1 inch of rain will fall in the Austin area by noon Saturday.
An ACL Fest spokeswoman said drainage systems at Zilker Park were inspected this morning, pumping equipment is in place and mulch has been stockpiled to address areas that might get muddy.
Last year, the final day of ACL Fest’s second weekend was cancelled after torrential rains flooded parts of Zilker Park, causing extensive damage.
