The Bud Light stage had acts throughout the day, but it and the AMD stage had all the headliners at night. Kanye, Stevie Wonder, and Arcade Fire all played here.

Big Boi was the first show I saw. I don’t love his music too much, but somehow I’ve seen him perform twice already in my life? First-world problems.

Christian Bale, the actor from Batman, was at ACL all weekend filming something. I saw him Friday and Sunday, and my friend saw him Saturday. He was at Fleet Foxes on Sunday.

Pretty Lights. A lot like Skrillex, but not as fun to dance to.

Kanye West’s entrance was both twenty minutes late, and the best entrance to any concert I’ve ever seen. There was a giant picture of a Greek statue as his stage backdrop, which, along with the ballerinas slinking around and pretending to worship him, played to the theme he created that he is a god.
