This just in from ACL Fest: “Austin – October 13, 2013: Due to current weather conditions with flash flood warnings, the Austin City Limits Music Festival organizers have canceled the festival today.”

“Our first priority is always the safety of our fans, staff and artists,” said Shelby Meade, communications director for C3 Presents, the promoter behind Austin City Limits Music Festival. “We regret having to cancel the show today, but safety always comes first.”

“Refunds will be issued automatically by check from Front Gate Tickets within three weeks. One-third of ticket price will be refunded to all ticket buyers based on original ticket price paid, and will be mailed to the billing address on the original order. For questions, please visit support.frontgatetickets.com.”
