Reverb contributor Candace Horgan made her way to Austin, Texas to attend the 7th annual Austin City Limits Music Festival, which took place Sept. 26-28 at Zilker Park in downtown Austin. Over the course of the three days she was able to completely indulge her musical ADD, running frantically back and forth among the festival’s eight stages to catch as many of her favorites as she could, as well as some of the bright up-and-comers.

The only downside was the occasional volume competition from the different stages; scheduling a heavy metal band on one stage while Gillian Welch was performing a quiet acoustic set was probably not the best idea. However, as Candace reports, the festival was highly enjoyable, drawing about 65,000 people per day to see the lineup of 130 diverse acts. Candace shot all three days, and below are just a few of her photographs.
