Musical Highlights From Austin City Limits, Weekend One (Playlist Included!)

Our favorite musical moments from weekend one of ACL! 

I’m down for anything, but…my favorite music might not be the most “Free People” thing about me. Take one ride in my car, and you’ll probably hear a mix of dirty rap, heavy bass house and techno. I was really looking forward to seeing this year’s bigger acts — A$AP, The Weeknd, Tame Impala, Disclosure, Drake, etc…and come Sunday, it was a battle between the main stages with both The Weeknd and The Strokes closing out the festival. In the midst of the headliner hype each day, I was just as excited to catch the up-and-comers. Alina Baraz, Sylvan Esso, Milo Greene, Ryn Weaver…

Between Julie and I, we may just have enough pictures from ACL to cover us until next year. Below are some of our favorite moments and a playlist to recap weekend one. Enjoy!
