There is a reason Austin is considered the Live Music Capital of the World and the downtown Austin music scene is it. Well, that and Austin City Limits (ACL) and South by Southwest (SXSW) and a few dozen other music events.

For over 33 years, Austin City Limits has presented live music to audiences across the world. The award-winning series spotlights artists of every musical genre; from rhythm and blues to rock, jazz, and alternative music.
City Limits Music Festival
Kind of like how Peyton Manning's career has eclipsed that of his father, Archie Manning, the ACL Music Festival has grown to the point that when someone mentions "ACL", they are probably talking about the music festival. Dozens of local acts play ever year and the festival has also featured headliners like Pearl Jam and the Foo Fighters.
The Austin Jazz Workshop is a unique project that brings professional jazz musicians directly into the public school classroom to work with young people.
