Our Photo Recap of ACL Festival 2018

We've got stunning photographs of the second weekend of the annual Austin City Limits (ACL) Music Festival below. Check them out to catch a glimpse of the action that went down in the 'Live Music Capital of the World'.

With over 200 artists performing on 8 stages, ACL took place on two consecutive three-day weekends (5–7 October and 12–14 October) in Zilker Park in Austin, Texas. This year, the festival saw over 70,000 daily music fans attending, totalling more than 400,000 visitors. Zilker Park is located on the banks of the Colorado River and features the scenic Austin skyline as a backdrop to the American Express stage which saw many big names perform, including Paul McCartney, Metallica, Janelle Monáe, David Byrne, Travis Scott and Camila Cabello.



For 10 years, our photographer Steve Galli has been covering festivals for CBS & Last.fm and he has spent a total of 39 days at ACL since 2009! This year, he captured 38 different artists, including Alice Merton, Blood Orange, Brandi Carlile, Elle King & the Brethren, Japanese Breakfast, Lil Wayne, Lo Moon, Mon Laferte, Natalie Prass, Nicole Atkins, Shawn Mendes, St. Vincent, The Breeders, The National, Thunderpussy with special guest Mike McCready (Pearl Jam guitarist), Tinashe and many more!
