ACL Festival 2012 Favorite Moments

Posted on Monday, October 15th, 2012 at 8:42am.

ACL Fun This year’s ACL goes down in the history books as of one of the best to date. Despite the rain on Saturday and the mud on Sunday, the festival was truly remarkable thanks to dedicated fans, delicious food and fantastic music. So in honor of a truly remarkable ACL festival, we’ve decided to post some of our favorite moments of the three day extravaganza. Friday- The combination of new comers Florence and the Machine and The Black Keys with the classic sounds of Weezer were the acts to see. And Florence’s performance of Rabbit Heart and Weezer’s Buddy Holly were the numbers to hear. Saturday- The two best acts in our opinion were The Shins and The Roots. Of course, Neil Young and Crazy Horse were also a site to behold, but who knew the Roots could get down like that? Saturday was also an awesome day to enjoy great food in the rain. Can you say Salt Lick and Mighty Cone? Sunday- This was the best day of them all in our opinion. Avett Brothers and Red Hot Chili Peppers at the same show? Can it get any better? The highlights from both sets were January Wedding and Suck My Kiss, and sliding around in the mud made the experience even better. Honorable mentions for Sunday include Lumineers and Freelance Whales, both of which drew sizable crowds and put on great performances. ACL 2012 was quite the festival to remember. Great food. Great people. Great music. Now we begin counting down the days to ACL 2013. And in case you haven’t heard, ACL Fest confirmed that ACL 2013 will be hosting two weekends of awesome music. So for those who missed out this year, mark your calendars for Weekends One (October 4-6) and Two (October 11-13) 2013! Check out the pictures Cali took and let us know what some of your favorite moments were from this ACL festival.
