I know ACL (Austin City Limits) is not until October but the lineup came out today. There will be so many good bands: Flaming Lips, Band of Horses, LCD Soundsystem and Norah Jones to name a few. I am so excited to see Angus and Julia Stone live. Check out their video “Mango Tree.” Life changing.
WHAT IS AUSTIN CITY LIMITS? Austin City Limits is a 3-day Music Festival in Austin, TX featuring 130 bands on 8 stages.

WHY WE HUB THEM: We hub music. ACL is famous for headlining some major mainstream musicians as well as some up-and-coming bands you SHOULD know. Not only are they creating a whole weekend of fun in the sun, they also do it the green way. The festival is 100% carbon neutral and they are doing their part by banning styrofoam, plastic bags and more. You can also help off-set your carbon footprint by picking up a Be Green Fan Tag for $3.

HOW WE CAN HELP: Musicians and Artists go together like peanut butter and jelly. Artistic Hub would love to team up with Austin City Limits to run a t-shirt design contest for the festival coming this October. Why not let artists from around the world create and submit their t-shirt designs for the event? The public would vote for their favorites on the ACL website and the one with the most votes would be the official t-shirt of the event. Plus, all of the designs in voting are available on-demand, so anyone could go online a purchase a design on a hoodie, t-shirt, tank top and more. This would be a fun way to get artists involved in the event and to get some really killer t-shirts that everyone would rock for years to come!
