KLRU, Bringing the World To Your Neighborhood

Friends of Austin City Limits

Experience the legendary Austin City Limits - an original production of KLRU-TV and the longest running live music performance program in television history.

Celebrating KLRU’s 44th Season!

This year marks the 44th season of Austin City Limits. KLRU provides access to these live performances and other exclusive invitations through the Friends of Austin City Limits program as a thank you for your annual membership contribution to KLRU, Austin PBS.

Each season brings 18-20 performances that make up a well-rounded season including some high-profile acts, surprises, new up-and-comers and legendary acts that give ACL its roots. Recent seasons included acts like Robert Plant, Florence + The Machine, Hayes Carll, Margo Price, Dan Auerbach, Jason Isbell, Amanda Shires, Father John Misty, Angel Olsen and so many more. Tapings are scheduled throughout the year based on artist availability and announced to members as soon as they are booked.

Support provided through Friends of ACL helps KLRU deliver quality public television and services in Central Texas that impact the community through local productions, programming and educational outreach delivered on-air, online and on the ground.

Florence and the Machine

Due to the popularity and low turn-over in the program, all levels of Friends of ACL are at capacity and waitlisted, both to join as new members or to upgrade levels as existing members. Access into the Friends of ACL program is offered in one of our two entry-levels, Friends with a View or Friends Up Front. Current donors within the Friends program are then eligible to be placed on an upgrade waitlist to fill space in other levels as they become available.

In addition to being on the waitlist, there are other ways you can show your support for KLRU and be eligible to experience Austin City Limits. To find out how, contact Amanda Hutchins at ahutchins@klru.org.
