Austin City Limits Festival In Talks To Expand

After Coachella’s decision to expand to two weekends paid off so handsomely this year, netting over $47 million in ticket sales alone, it appears another big name music festival may be poised to follow suit.

Austin city officials confirmed this morning that they are in talks with event promoter C3 Presents to double down on the Austin City Limits festival as early as 2013. The proposed expansion for the double-weekend festival would have it extending from its currently scheduled weekend of October 11-13 to the weekend of October 4-6.

In return, it would seem, C3 Presents has pledged to donate generously to the parks department in its efforts to restore outdoor concert venue Auditorium Shores in addition to the portion of ticket sales the Austin-based promoters donate each year to the Austin Parks Foundation.

The 2012 Austin City Limits festival will take place from October 12-14 and features musical acts including Red Hot Chili Peppers, Neil Young and Crazy Horse, The Black Keys, Jack White, Florence + The Machine and The Avett Brothers among many others.

I’ve gone to ACL 3 times and had a blast at every one of them. Seen fantastic artists like Van Morrison, Phish, Panic, and the Black Keys, and it’s one of the coolest cities in the world.

looking forward to 10 free vdieos! pretty packaging/marketing. C.J.‘s swing is gorgeous very up and down with great lines/angles. did get first video on grip. right hand palm theory should ruffle the feathers of the golfing elite! personally going to stick with hogan’s five fundamentals for refining and retuning my grip, but look forward to more vids cj’s swing is impressive. expecting vids to be very don trahan-esque which isn’t a bad thing!
