If you get the opportunity to catch a show here, grab it! It's truly a once in a lifetime experience. We saw Nine Inch Nails here in a performance that was unique only to ACL. The setting is intimate, it's a great venue, and a wonderful part of the Austin music scene.

I think any concert - no matter who the performer - here would be amazing. The sound is excellent, and the show feels so personal. There isn't a bad seat in the house. We sat in the second row, middle, of the balcony, and the view was superb! The opening act was fabulous and selling CD's, signing autographs, and posing... More

We were lucky enough to catch the Capital Cities/Band of Skulls/Soundgarden show during SXSW. Having never been to the theater, we were just blown away by the sound quality. It was especially noticed during the Capital Cities set, as you could crisply hear all of the instruments and the layering in the songs. The live performance was so much better... More

We went on a tour of the facilities at ACL. So informative and the tour guide couldn't have been nicer. Search the internet of tours. You can go there at 10:00-10:30 buy tickets for the tours that last about 1-2 hours. We loved it. It was the highlight of our trip

Another great show and thanks to the sound guys for making it right. Great acoustics. A little more control of the loud mouths would be nice but overall a great venue.

We have been to a couple of shows there now and we will definitely go back. Great acoustics, plenty of locations to get drinks and nice layout - you never feel far from the stage.

Not a bad seat in he house & the best live music venue in Austin period! Tickets & venue services are a bit pricy, but worth it.

Downtown Austin is very vibrant, much to the chagrin of the aging hippies of Austin. However, ACL Live is probably the center of the rejuvenated downtown scene. The acoustics are great. Valet parking is available. A great W hotel is right next door as are great restaurants and bars. I wish more touring bands would perform there.

A new location makes for a great venue. We've seen several bands play there, and have been in seats in the balcony as well as standing on floor. You can see the stage from any location and there are at least a couple of places to get drinks during the show. It's fun to be part of the ACL legend.
