The Austin City Limits Festival 2013 opened its second weekend as the sold-out festival it has been for more than a decade, encouraging hopes that the dual-weekend approach to the event would stick past this year. It did dash some expectations that a repeat of its opening round last weekend would draw smaller crowds, at least over the course of the entire three days.

But the sea of humanity was noticeably thinner on Day One in the early hours — more like the festival days of old, when it was just the working locals who came to ACL; from 11 am to around 4 pm Friday, the atmosphere was low-key, aired-out and open, with plenty of space for blankets and no throngs stepping on your toes every four seconds. – [CultureMap]

While Sunday’s finale (10/13) was a literal wash, the second weekend of the ACL Music Festival got off to a muggy start on Friday (10/11) with — like the previous Friday — sets from Arctic Monkeys, Vampire Weekend, QOTSA, Okkervil River, Pinback, Jake Bugg, Depeche Mode, Local Natives, Muse and more. Pictures from day 1 are in this post.
