This January, Austin came to London!
2020 marked the 5th year of AmericanaFest UK, The Americana Music Association UK’s annual festival comprising a conference, artist showcases and awards ceremony, located in multiple venues across Hackney, London.
To celebrate Austin’s live music scene crossing the pond, Visit Austin is giving you and a friend the chance to win the holiday of a lifetime to the Live Music Capital of the World®, in association with Norwegian and Austin City Limits (ACL) Live.
In the heart of Texas sits the weird and wonderful paradise of Austin. It’s known globally for its live music - from the buzzing downtown venues of 6th Street to festivals like SXSW® Conference & Festivals and ACL Music Festival. Must do activities include sampling the local BBQ joints, checking out the food truck scene, taking in the unique shopping, from thrift stores and cowboy boot shops to designer outlets, then chilling out in Austin’s vast array of beautiful, natural spots such as Zilker Park and Barton Springs Pool - a natural, spring-fed three-acre pool. Experience Austin any way you want - hiking, biking, paddle boarding or on the race track at Circuit of The Americas™.
The lucky winner and a friend will stay 4 nights in Austin, flying in style with Norwegian, the World’s Best Low Cost Airline for five years in a row, in a brand new 787 Dreamliner ensuring the best comfort thanks to features such as:
• comfortable seats with plenty of space for your legs
• fresh air and optimal cabin pressure resulting in less jet lag
• 65% larger windows than in comparable planes
• smart mood lighting
No visit to Austin would be complete without live music. During your stay you and a friend will be invited to a gig at ACL Live at the Moody Theater (ACL Live) - a state-of-the-art, 2,750-person capacity live music venue that hosts approximately 100 concerts a year. It serves as the permanent home for the taping of the acclaimed Austin PBS produced series, Austin City Limits, the longest running music series in American television history.
