The Spotlight

With things kicking off today all over Austin’s Zilker Park, today wraps up our preview of the Austin City Limits Festival. That in mind, we leave you with a wrap up of everything that’s going on this weekend.

If you can’t make it down to Austin, don’t worry our friends at WXRT have you covered with a FULL LIVE WEBCAST and on the scene live blogging.  People from Myspace will also be on the ground covering the event, so there’re plenty of ways to partake in the experience without shelling out for a ticket.

If you are lucky enough to be attending the event in person, however, here’s a quick rundown of some of the must-see shows:

Friday features concerts by notable acts like Coldplay (who will also be playing a Live on Letterman show next Tuesday, which too will be webcasted), Big Boi, Kanye West, Smith Westerns, James Blake and Bobby Long (who’s Last.fm Discover Studio Session we featured on Wednesday).
