The Austin City Limits Music Festival, which had been on pause due to the COVID-19 epidemic, celebrated its 20th anniversary this past weekend at Austin’s Zilker Park.

Tyler, the Creator, Megan Thee Stallion, and Doja Cat, to name a few, all had noteworthy performances during the Texas music festival, which will return with a virtually similar roster this weekend.

The event got off to a late start on Friday due to wet weather and muddy festival grounds, which caused organizers to postpone ACL’s start time. ACL, on the other hand, struck the ground running with excellent consecutive sets at the Honda Stage once things got going. Machine Gun Kelly was the first to play with the new set timings, abandoning most of his rap songs in favor of a rock rendition of his current album.

Megan Thee Stallion, a headliner in her own right, took the stage moments later for the finest show of the night. To no one’s surprise, Texas and all of her beautiful ladies in attendance were enamored with Tina Snow’s performance. Megan’s performance was packed with her greatest songs and even more twerking, including a surprise appearance on stage from the night’s headliner, Miley Cyrus, who joined Megan’s supporters to twerk with her.

Following a fantastic first day, fans were treated to performances by Freddie Gibbs, Doja Cat, and Jack Harlow on Day 2.

On Saturday, Gangster Gibbs performed at the T-Mobile Stage and did not disappoint. Early in his performance, the Indiana icon entered the photo pit and got up up and personal with his most ardent Texas fans in the front row. Doja Cat took her performance to the main stage of Zilker Park for a sea of spectators, replete with backing dancers and a tropical set design. Fans rushed to the opposite side of the event as she finished her performance with her popular song “Say So,” to catch the start of Jack Harlow, another rapper who has become a household name since the epidemic. Harlow sang a number of songs from his new album, “Thats What They All Say,” throughout his set.

If a stellar roster of artists on the festival grounds wasn’t enough for Austin music lovers, the ACL family surprised them with an intimate performance by Olivia Rodrigo. The “Good 4 U” singer took the stage for a filming of PBS’s famous ACL Live less than two miles away, performing just her second ever performance for fans. Rodrigo’s freshly announced appearance was an additional bonus to the city’s schedule of activities, rivaling Billie Eilish’s headlining performance on Day 2 of the ACL Festival.

Tyler, the Creator, Polo G, Erykah Badu, and Toosii all performed on Sunday, bringing the weekend to a conclusion. Toosi and Polo G opened the day for the festival’s rap lovers on their separate stages, a few hours before the fashionably late Erykah Badu graced ATX with her presence. Tyler, the Creator made a pit stop in Austin on his short festival run ahead of his upcoming stadium tour to round off the weekend on a high note. Tyler took DaBaby’s place on the ACL schedule after his inflammatory remarks about HIV led a number of festivals to cancel his performances, and given the enthusiasm he brought to ACL on Sunday, there was no better rapper to fill the void.
