Slacker Inc. is now live with Austin City Limits 2011, the official personal radio station of the Austin City Limits Music Festival, featuring music from the 130 bands and artists in the 2011 lineup. The free station will continue to be available after the festival, which runs today through Sunday, and it is being updated throughout the event with exclusive artist interviews conducted by Slacker DJs.
“The Austin City Limits 2011 station is a great way for music fans to experience the ACL Festival, whether they are attending or not,” said Scott Riggs, director of Radio at Slacker. “Listeners can enjoy music by the artists they already love, discover new favorites and, because the station is hosted by Slacker, personalize the station to cater to their own musical tastes.”
The special station can be accessed directly as well as through the Festivals/Events section of Slacker Radio on all platforms. Along with the exclusive interviews, listeners have instant access to artist profiles, album reviews and album cover art just as with other Slacker stations.
Among the 130 artists playing on Austin City Limits 2011’s eight stages are Stevie Wonder, Arcade Fire (pictured), Coldplay, Kanye West, Alison Krauss & Union Station, My Morning Jacket, Santigold and Sara Bareilles.
