10 Best Things We Saw at Austin City Limits Fest 2014

Pearl Jam, Outkast, the Replacements, Lana Del Rey and more highlight the Texas institution’s sunny first weekend

ACL Festival

Austin City Limits Festival — a Texas institution almost on par with South by Southwest — kicked off its second year as a two-week music bonanza with three days of almost cloudless skies at picturesque Zilker Park. Onstage, veteran rockers Pearl Jam played to their top headlining spot and Eminem nearly stole the entire weekend. The EDM trifecta of Skrillex, Zedd and Major Lazer moved the crowd, alongside the Dirty South goodness of Outkast's ongoing reunion and the kitchen-sink eclecticism of Beck. With the first half of the 2014 edition now in the books, there is one thing everyone can agree on: Next weekend, we need to get Iggy Azalea a bigger stage.
