After Phoebe Bridgers had her sound cut off early during her second weekend performance at Austin City Limits Festival on Saturday, she tweeted “lol fuck acl.” Today, the festival has offered an explanation, an apology, and a donation to Texas Abortion Funds (which Bridgers supported recently with her cover of Bo Burnham’s “That Funny Feeling”). Austin City Limits organizers shared the following statement with the Austin American Statesman:

“Unfortunately, due to a miscommunication on stage by ACL Festival personnel, the sound on the final song of (the) Phoebe Bridgers set was cut off during her ACL Fest weekend two performance. We wish this had not happened and extend our apologies to Phoebe. After positive conversations between festival organizers and the artist about the situation, ACL Fest has made a donation to Texas Abortion Funds to show our support for Phoebe and an organization close to her heart.”
