“Austin City Limits” is an American television concert music program that first aired in 1976. The series began as a mainly Texas-style music program, but has since gone on to cover a variety of styles and has expanded beyond Texas alone. The program is taped live by a PBS station on University of Texas at Austin’s campus and images of the beautiful city of Austin, Texas are shown in the opening credits.
The “Austin City Limits Music Festival”, an annual live music festival at Zilker Park in Austin, was inspired by this television series. Made up of more than 130 bands and eight stages, this three-day music festival covers the genres of rock, country, folk, Indie, Americana, hip-hop, reggae, and blue grass. Around 65,000 people attend this music festival each day, making it part of the premier rock festivals group along with Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and Coachella. The seventh annual (2009) Austin City Limits Music Festival is scheduled for September 26-28 and includes bands such as the Foo Fighters, Robert Plant and Allison Krauss, Beck, The Raconteurs, The Mars Volta, Gnarls Barkley, Erykah Badu, and many more.
