This morning the Austin City Limits Music Festival announced its lineup for the autumn music bazaar that will take place October 3-5 and 10-12 in Austin's Zilker Park. Some of the top names include Eminem (as expected), OutKast, Pearl Jam, Lorde (second weekend only), Skrillex, Lana Del Rey, Beck, Calvin Harris, The Replacements, Jimmy Cliff, Major Lazer, Spoon, The Head and the Heart, Belle & Sebastian, Chvurches, Zedd, Chromeo, Childish Gambino, Zedd, The Avett Brothers, and former Houstonian Robert Ellis.
The full lineup is below.
By popular demand, ACL has reinstated its single-day passes, which the festival's Web site says will be available later on in the spring. Three-day passes ($225) go on sale in about four hours, at 10 a.m. through aclfestival.com. They'll go quick.
This will be ACL's 13th year.
