Double the weekends means double the entertainment options
Since ACL followed Coachella’s lead and expanded to two weekends in 2013, you have double the chances to see your favorite bands... and a backup weekend in case some inconsiderate couple schedules their wedding or something. And while the main acts are the same each weekend, there are certain performers who are only appearing on one or the other. (Weekend One: Andrew Bird, Chris Stapleton, Kacey Musgraves, St. Lucia, Blue October, and more; Weekend Two: Willie Nelson, AWOLNATION, Andrew .Paak & The Free Nationals, Conor Oberst, Ra Ra Riot, etc.).
In other words, you can go both weekends and have two equally awesome experiences. And if you go Weekend Two, you can enjoy the added bonus of avoiding UT frat bros who will be in Dallas for the Oklahoma game. God bless America.
