Austin OKs 2nd Weekend Of ACL Music Festival

Updated: Friday, August 17 2012, 07:54 PM CDT

The Austin City Council has approved a second weekend of the Austin City Limits Music Festival for next year.

They passed a resolution Thursday morning asking the city manager to negotiate and execute an agreement with C3 Presents for an additional weekend. 

Organizers say it will be the same type of show on both weekends with similar bands.   They say now more people can attend and it would spread out the growing crowd.

The 2013 ACL Fest will be scheduled in Zilker Park for Oct. 4-6 and Oct. 11-13. Parts of the park would be open to the public during the four-day interim between the weekend concerts.

Austin Parks Director Sara Hensley says C3 has volunteered to cover the added costs of maintenance and security brought by the extension. She also says an infusion of cash from the private company could bring badly needed improvements to other open air venues such as Auditorium Shores.  C3 Presents held the first ever Austin Food and Wine Festival at that park earlier this year.Austin OKs 2nd Weekend Of ACL Music Festival
