Normally, you can spend a weekend in October enjoying the Austin City Limits Music Festival. This year, for the first time, the Austin, Texas, festival needed two weekends to host the 130-plus bands on the eight scaffold-built stages at Zilker Park.

On Day 1 of the first weekend of the festival, Austin gospel group Belles of Joy performed “I Saw the Light” on one stage. Amongst the scattered wristband-clad hands, a toddler with white ear plugs did his best to clap along.

That afternoon, country crooner Holly Williams (Hank Williams’ granddaughter) took the BMI stage. Williams and the three other members of her band, including Kings of Leon member Chris Coleman, performed songs such as “Waiting on June."
