2012 Commemorative ACL Festival Poster
Austin and the ACL Festival are must-see destinations for any music lover, and we celebrate that idea in this year's commemorative poster. Inspired by classic travel posters of the 1920s and '30s, acclaimed illustrator Andy Gregg of Anderson Design Group created a color-rich, highly stylized landscape that evokes the view of the city skyline as seen over the east main stage of the Festival. Our resident bats soar overhead in the starry sky alongside the beckoning words, Visit the Austin City Limits Music Festival.
The Commemorative Edition is offset-printed with four-color process ink on uncoated, heavyweight, 100% post-consumer recycled paper. The complete band lineup is listed at the bottom below the main artwork, and the overall dimension are 18-in x 24-in. The posters are printed in a limited quantity, and once they are sold out will not be re-issued.
For true collectors, the poster is also offered in two special companion editions: Numbered and Signed & Numbered. Don't miss out!
