There are a lot of reasons to be excited about October. For starters, football season is in full swing and triple-digit temps have begun to make way for cooler weather. Not to mention there’s a limitless amount of pumpkin-spiced items to indulge your cravings. But at our home-base in Austin, October means one thing—the epic Austin City Limits Music Festival. For two weekends nearly half a million music lovers convene on our beloved Zilker Park to see their favorite musical acts from around the world.
Through our Katie Kime x ACL Platinum Lounge, we get to introduce this crowd to some of our favorite products of the season alongside refreshing cocktails and plenty of southern hospitality by creating a KK world for VIP guests to hang and get some rest from the heat. Sitting at the drawing board to imagine what each year’s lounges will look like has been one of my favorite creative exercises over the last two years.
What do we have in store for this year? Well, you’ll just have to wait to find out, but be sure you’re following us here for all of our sneak peeks and first reveals. In the meantime, join us for a stroll down memory lane as we look at our past ACL Platinum Lounge experiences. Plus, we’ve added a playlist with some of our favorite ACL 2018 artists. Use it to get ready for the festival or to curb the FOMO if you won’t be making it this year.
