50 years

October 17, 2024, will mark 50 years to the day that Willie Nelson first stepped on our stage to record the pilot episode of Austin City Limits.

We're celebrating five decades of Austin City Limits in 2024 with star-studded tapings, special events, live streams, episode premieres, exclusive merch collaborations and more. Join us for a massive birthday party in early 2025 as we say thank you to the fans, artists and community for making Austin City Limits the longest-running music series in television history.

Follow us and sign up to get all the invites and details!
