The annual three-day Austin City Limits music festival kicks off this weekend and YouTube is stepping up to bring the music to anyone who can't make the journey out to Texas. A video stream went live moments ago and will continue through Sunday, though sadly you won't be able to enjoy all of ACL's hundred-plus acts. YouTube is providing two simultaneous feeds each day but even that won't be enough to cover all eight stages at Zilker Park. Still, it should make for a convenient way to catch headliners like the Black Keys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jack White, and The Roots.

One major absence from the stream schedule is Neil Young's Saturday evening performance. A conflict with Jack White's set means festival goers will have to make a choice, but it seems Google has taken the liberty of making that decision for its web viewers. We tested the link below on both iOS and Android with splendid results, so why wait until you get home to start listening?
