ACL will actively help to create another #covid19 variant. Our health care providers and frontline workers are stretched beyond their limits.

These tickets are way too expensive for them to not offer refunds. I didn’t pay $250 to see Duran Duran. I paid it to see Stevie Nicks who, understandably, canceled. It’s ridiculous that my only options are to go see bands I don’t care about or don’t go at all and just eat $250 (X2). This event needs to be canceled. It’s completely irresponsible to still allow this.

When hospitals are full, Zilker Park shouldn't be.

We wanted to go especially for Stevie Nicks. We purchased tickets PRIOR to the delta variant. While we are vaccinated this is not a safe event overall. They need to cancel and refund. Safety and health should come before profit.

People fly in from all over the world to perform and attend ACL. Our entire city will be a breeding ground for covid because they don't just head to Zilker Park for the fest, people descend all over into the city—going into restaurants, stores, bars—just mass crowds everywhere. Hospitals are already understaffed with no beds. Be responsible and cancel it! I love music, but not at the risk of people getting sick, people dying and hospital staff facing even worse conditions. If Austinites need an ICU hospital for any reason, we could be without care. ACL producers and performers, it’s about doing the right thing to save lives.

Our hospitals cannot handle local residents let alone visitors from all over the country. Keeping schools open and protecting hospital capacity are more important than a music festival. People will not wear masks even if required and a negative COVID test 3 days before the event is meaningless when people start partying in bars the day after their test.

ACL is not safe! Please cancel for the sake of all. ACL can come back next year.
