ACL Fest day 3: Gates are open; tickets still available

There was not a huge crowd waiting when the gates opened under sunny skies on day three of the Austin City Limits Music Festival.

When the gates opened at 11 a.m., Gorillaz fan Ricky Perera of McAllen runs to get a good spot in front of the stage for the 8:15 p.m. Gorillaz show at the Austin City Limits Music Festival in Zilker Park on Sunday October 8, 2017. JAY JANNER / AMERICAN-STATESMAN

Tickets are still available and a few fans ran to stake out prime spots by the big stages where Killers and Gorillaz will headline later tonight, but for the most part, fest-goers sauntered in to the sounds of Lionel Richie singing “Easy Like Sunday Morning” over the loudspeakers.

Notable acts coming up today include Vance Joy, Run the Jewels, Portugal. the Man and First Aid Kit.
