ACL 2012 Kicks Off

Updated: Friday, October 12 2012, 05:58 PM CDT

Just like it is every year, the theme from Star Wars was the cue Friday morning for an entire force of fans to begin their annual battle to lay claim to a perfect space to take in three days of live music.

Of course, the Austin City Limits Music Festival is as well known for its live music as it is for its long lines.  As soon as they entered Zilker Park, the masses began queuing up to create a "picture perfect" start to their ACL weekend with a portrait using a newly installed huge frame that encompasses a stage and the downtown Austin skyline.

Historically, the only one who has been able to compete with the Mighty Cone is chef to the stars Tim Love. With that, the table is now set for a feast of live music.  And you have a seat even if you don't have a wrist band, because YouTube will be live streaming some of the hottest headliners from ACL 2012.
