LiveMom is thrilled to be covering the Austin City Limits Music Festival for the fifth straight year. We have listened to all 140 bands and are your one-stop-shop for the biggest music event of the fall, whether you are taking the whole fam or using it as an excuse to get some adult time. Keep up with our coverage of this year’s festival here on LiveMom and over on Facebook, Twitter, our ACL 2014 Pinterest page and Instagram. We’ll be there Weekend One! You can even peruse our schedule.


After many months of anticipation, ACL is finally here! We’ve told you how to get there, what to bring, how to balance family time and adult time and even what to wear. Now, onto the most important part – the music.

I’m leaving my kid at home again this year, since he’d much rather participate in a post-dinner dance party than brave the crowds at ACL. So, although there are some great musicians performing at Austin Kiddie Limits, I’ll be treating myself to a weekend full of music geared toward adults. Although it was quite difficult to decide, here are our picks for Weekend One:
