ACL Fest: Gates are open under scattered clouds

Gates are open on day two of the second weekend of the Austin City Limits Music Festival. At the 11 a.m. gate time, scattered clouds  obscured the sun somewhat, but don’t leave your sun hat at home. Our forecast shows clouds burning off by early afternoon, leaving us with another day of bright sun and temperatures creeping up near 90 degrees.

Both Saturdays of the festival sold out weeks ago, so we can expect thick crowds on the ground by mid-afternoon and a packed field later tonight when headline Chance the Rapper and the Red Hot Chili Peppers take the stage.
