What I Love About Austin ~ Austin City Limits

What I Love About Austin ~ Austin City Limits

The Austin City Limits television show on PBS has helped define the Austin music scene since 1974.  Growing into the ACL Festival, the show and festival has featured musical acts from all over the world.  Originating from KLRU, in Austin, the show was initially created to feature the music of Texas but has gone on to include national and international acts.  Since the show tapes regularly, tickets to the TV show are readily available, depending on the act.

The TV show and festival are such a part of the fabric of what makes Austin that it is one of the features that continually attracts not only visitors but residents to Central Texas.

Bill Arhos was the original creator and executive producer.
