2013 ACL Fest Interview: Local Natives

Matt Frazier and Kelcey Ayer from Local Natives dig the atmosphere of music-minded people at ACL Festival. They chatted with us about instruments, the “freaky” pre-show rituals they hope to develop over time, and how their oldest song, “Sun Hands,” is the best rowdy, crowd-pleasing singalong to end every show.

Get Ready for 2014! Watch the 2013 ACL Fest Highlights!

To get you pumped for 2014, take a look back at the first ever two-weekend Austin City Limits Music Festival! From green grass and blue skies to rain and pop-up shows around town, the 2013 festivals were a memorable experience whether you attended Weekend One or Weekend Two.
