Music’s Best Address just got even better. 3TEN ACL Live is the latest addition to the venerable Austin City Limits brand and family.
Located downstairs from ACL Live in downtown Austin, 3TEN is a 350-person capacity state-of-the-art showcase listening room presenting smaller “house” shows of world-renowned, emerging, and local artists, as well as custom private event experiences.
As the newest extension of the Austin City Limits experience, 3TEN is reverently reminiscent of the original ACL Studio 6A at the University of Texas in both size and commitment to musical discovery and excellence. And as with its bigger cousin ACL Live, 3TEN is also the embodiment of style, technological innovation, and exceptional quality. The venue is equipped with the most advanced audio and lighting systems available to deliver a live music experience like no other.
3TEN’s interior is rich with dark hardwoods, lush velvet, and brass trimmings and features stately VIP and Green Rooms. The venue’s large sliding glass front doors open up the breadth of the façade to the 3TEN patio on Willie Nelson Boulevard. Fans can easily see the stage from the patio while enjoying a beverage from the patio service window for the interior bar. The space is wired for livestreaming, recording sound and video, and is customizable. Whether it’s a regular concert, ACL Live after-show, wedding, or corporate affair, the space can be configured in any manner depending on the needs of the event.
To continue ACL Live’s commitment to sustainability, 3TEN was constructed with all LEED certification requirements in place, including an impressive array of digital screen displays—the largest is a 9.8′ x 16.4′ LED video wall positioned behind the stage. LEED is a mark of excellence developed by the U.S. Green Building Council acknowledging measurable performance attributes that benefit human and environmental health.
The architecture firm responsible for 3TEN ACL Live is Sanders Architecture; the Project Team includes Christopher Sanders, Isabelle Bogran, Jena Hammond, and Catherine Craig. The interior design was handled by Heather Plimmer and Cate DeForest of Heston Design Studio.
