AUSTIN, TX — The Austin City Limits Music Festival ended a day early after severe weather and heavy rains prompted the move. Erin Cargile reports music fans were disappointed, but the good news is they're getting a partial refund on their tickets.
The VIP spot, no longer a desirable hang out at Zilker Park. Standing water, thousands of music fans and a lot of electrical wiring, not a good mix.
Some workers, grateful for the free day Robert Moen, Music Festival Worker, "My legs are aching after two days so I'll probably go home and nurse my wounds and come back next year."
Lindsey Smith, Music Fan, "Now, I don' know I guess were gonna to a bar or something."
Lindsey Smith and Sean McGrath learned ACL was over when they arrived early Sunday to work the box office, "So it seems like its reasonable, but it sucks. Still, I was pretty excited to see Lionel Richie again."
But all is not lost, music fans are getting a third of their money back and those who steer clear of the scene, "I just try to ignore it and wait for it to go away."
Getting an unexpected day of peace and quiet, for Ken Russell, who lives nearby, a Sunday morning stroll was in order. He has two reasons to celebrate, "I get the day off work. I'm supposed to run Hancock Golf Course today."
