AUSTIN (KXAN) — C3 Presents, which produces the Austin City Limits Music Festival, presented the Austin Parks Foundation with an $8.1 million check Monday that will go toward improvements at the hundreds of parks and recreation centers throughout the city.

The festival’s commitment to Austin parks is nearly $1 million more than last year’s contribution to the foundation.

Festival organizers and city leaders said the 2023 festival had a $500 million impact on the city — a more than 10% increase from 2022.

The 2022 ACL Music Festival brought in nearly $448 million for the Austin economy. More than $3 billion has been generated since ACL began tracking the festival’s economic impact in 2006, organizers previously said.

Kendrick Lamar, Foo Fighters, Mumford & Sons, Odesza, The Lumineers, Shania Twain, Alanis Morissette and Hozier headlined in 2023.

The 2024 festival lineup was released on May 9 with Dua Lipa, Tyler, The Creator, Chris Stapleton, Blink-182, Sturgill Simpson, Pretty Lights, Khruangbin and Leon Bridges among the artists scheduled to perform.
