While attending ACL last year, I decided that it was going to be my final time. It was my tenth year going, and even though I had a great time, I decided that my 2017 would be better spent attending new and different music festivals.
Although I did go to several new music festivals this year, come October, I ended up going to ACL anyway. Furthermore, I attended not just one but both weekends of ACL, and lo and behold, I had an awesome time. Overall, my favorite weekend was the second, mostly because of the tickets I had. I was gifted two guest passes by my workplace, which gave me and my friend Mo entrance to the festival all three days as well as access to two different lounges with free drinks and food. While we didn’t spend much time in the lounges, preferring instead to be in the festival watching the music performances, we did do some damage. All in all, I had an amazing time at both weekends of ACL this year, and knowing myself, will probably attend next year’s festival as well. Here are a few photos of my ACL 2017 experience:
