If you’re interested in attending a taping or submitting/suggesting an artist or band, please see the process for doing so below.

Taping schedule:

There is no set schedule of taping days or times as those are based on artist/band availability and are often subject to change. We will post all taping information on klru.org/satellitesets once it is confirmed.

Attending a taping:

We don’t issue tickets for these tapings. Everything is handled on an RSVP – first come first serve basis when filmed in KLRU’s Austin City Limits Studio. We will post upcoming tapings along with the link to RSVP on our site. The artists have the opportunity to post the link on their site as well if they choose to do so. We have a limited capacity when shooting in the studio so once the RSVP spots are gone, we can no longer guarantee admittance. Taping locations may vary and admittance to non-studio tapings will be based on the venue’s standard operating procedure which may include cover charges and age restrictions.

Submission process:

If you have not already, please email links to satellitesets@klru.org for up to 3 songs or direct us to a site where we can hear examples of the music (No hard copies please). Please include the appropriate contact information for the artist/band. We will consider all submissions – there are no limitations to genre or style. You will hear from us ONLY if we’re interested in hearing more. A response is not a guarantee that you’ll be booked. All submissions are kept on file for consideration for the future, so please do not re-submit if you don’t hear from us.
