BMI continued its long-running support of the Austin City Limits Music Festival during the music extravaganza’s 2009 run, October 2-4 in Austin’s Zilker Park. In the midst of a mild Friday, rainy Saturday and subsequently muddy Sunday, BMI stage performers Jonathan Tyler and the Northern Lights, Jesse Wood, Jypsi, Jonell Mosser, nelo, the Greencards, Sarah Siskind, Damien Horne, Matt Morris, Sons of Bill, the Dexateens, Vince Mira, the Wood Brothers, Jeffrey Steele, and John Vanderslice garnered picks and praise—and gave festival-goers plenty of reasons to slush through one of the country’s premier live music events.

BMI’s stage at the Austin City Limits Music Festival exemplifies the organization’s continued dedication to fostering auspicious new talent. BMI’s layered approach to songwriter development comprises educational, creative and promotional opportunities, including the BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theatre, Jason Blume Songwriters’ and Jazz Composers Workshops; 8 off 8th, Pick of the Month and Acoustic Lounge showcase series; and stages at premier festivals including Lollapalooza, South By Southwest, the Key West Songwriters Festival and the Austin City Limits Music Festival
