The final installment of Season 1 of our new virtual reality series ACL: Backstage, starring Austin superstars Spoon, is out now. The ACL four-timers (that’s Seasons 28, 31, 36 and 40 for you trainspotters) and ACL Festival favorites have been a mainstay of our fair city’s music scene for a quarter of a century, and this episode illustrates why they’re one of today’s biggest live acts. ACL: Backstage offers viewers amazing, only-in-VR moments, taking fans behind the scenes for a conversation with Britt Daniel & co. and closer than front row seats to Spoon’s sold-out show at Austin’s legendary Stubb’s venue. Check it, and the entire 10-episode series, out here. Season 1 features a stellar slate of superstars straight from Austin City Limits’ Season 43, including Run the Jewels, Ed Sheeran, Father John Misty, Dan Auerbach, Zac Brown Band and more. Watch ACL: Backstage on YouTube, and the content is even more immersive when viewed in Daydream or Cardboard.
ACL: Backstage is presented by ACL and SubVRsive, an Emmy-nominated XR company based in Austin, TX that focuses on creating impactful 360 Video, Virtual Reality, and Augmented Reality experiences.
