ACL Fest Video Diary

Have camera, will dance

I spent 25 total hours in Zilker Park last weekend attempting to dance like a sugar-crazed child for 19 different sets of music at ACL Fest. Another weekend ahead, and my internal machine is starting to break down.

I cruised around the grounds with my GoPro camera trying to capture every set I saw. Standouts include Kendrick Lamar, Electric Six, and Wilco. Other highlights: Jake Bugg, Wild Belle, Portugal the Man, the Cure, Foxygen, White Denim, and Tame Impala.

Only two days of rest before heading back out into the circus. Get your cameras ready.
