There are also plenty of new bands that will big draws at ACL 2008.  Three bands that have played in Austin recently, and are sure to create a lot of buzz are: Band of Horses, Vampire Weekend and The Raconteurs.  Band of Horses recently played a sold out show at La Zona Rosa, and The Raconteurs just completed two pack nights at Stubb’s.

Music fans from all over the World flock to Austin for ACL Festival, because it is the best compilation of bands this side of Lollapalooza or Coachella Festival.  There are only a few opportunities for music lovers to see dozens of their favorite acts at the same location, and ACL Fest is one of the coolest options.  The shows all take place outside at Zilker Park, on the banks of Town Lake.  There is a variety of great food and drinks, and lots of fun people to meet.  Aside from the Texas heat, there is nothing about ACL Festival that is not perfect for a big music fan.
