Do You Agree With the Petition to Cancel the ACL Festival?
The Austin City Limits music festival was canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 virus and now some are calling for the fest to be canceled again this year.
A Change.org petition is making the rounds and collecting signatures to cancel the event which is scheduled to take place from October 1-3 and October 8-10 at Zilker Park in Austin.
Here is an excerpt from the petition.
Due to Governor Abbott’s laws against vaccine passports and mask mandates, it is no longer safe to have this event. ACL has no plans to even discuss canceling. For the public safety of all that live in Austin, it’s best to cancel the festival. The pandemic is not over yet, the virus is still mutating. We must do all that we can to stop this super spreader event.
KEYE-TV in Austin reports organizers of the ACL Fest are monitoring local COVID recommendations from health officials.
ACL Fest organizers said they are in regular communication with local health and public safety officials and will follow current recommendations and guidelines in place at the time of the festival.
The author of the Cancel ACL Fest petition goes on to say:
Many people without vaccines will be able to attend, many people will become ill. We must ACT NOW!
