Lowe’s Studio brings cool gigs, shade and wifi to ACL festival
Probably one of the most auspicious new enhancements to the Austin City Boundaries Music Event grounds this season is Lowe’s Studio, a small wooden stage and hangout space situated next to the Waterloo Records store on the northeast end of the park.
It would be a pull for weary fest admirers exclusively for its color, and because its free wifi interconnection can be considered a lifesaver when the audience overwhelm the cell towers. However the coolest thing is the occasional acoustic set on the tiny stage that occurs when the near by Samsung level is on set-change.

Previous weekend, we trapped a short little from Naked & Famous before their performance on the Cirrus Logic State. KUTX DJ Elizabeth McQueen offered as host, asking the band a few pre-determined questions between tracks. The vibe was casual and easygoing, with little stations like a drumkit pad setup around the area for interaction.
A staffer at the area said lowes employee team purpose was to attract millennials who might be looking at buying a residence later on. Will this be considered a everlasting fixture at ACL? Hard to state, the consultant responded, noting that the structure’s wall surfaces, roof top and floor will be donated to Habitat for Mankind following this year’s fest.
