ACL Fest: 2022

ACL Fest 2022 was the first post-pandemic festival since we had attended in 2019. For a combination of reasons—heat, schedule conflicts, crowds, and we’re-not-getting-any-younger—Bill and I decided to just go one day on the second weekend of the three-day festival. We chose a Friday since that’s always the least crowded day.

L’Impératrice was our surprise band of the day. These French musicians were fantastic. Earlier in 2022, we’d already seen Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats (at Austin’s Moody Amphitheater), Arlo Parks (at her Austin City Limits TV taping), and The Chicks (at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, CA). We were happy to see all of them again.
