Radiohead will headline the 15th edition of the Austin City Limits Music Festival, scheduled for the weekends of September 30-October 2 and October 7-9 in Austin’s Zilker Park, promoter C3 Presents announced this morning. Other top acts include Mumford & Sons, Kendrick Lamar, LCD Soundsystem, the Chainsmokers, M83, Willie Nelson, Major Lazer, Kygo, Haim, Anderson .Paak, Kacey Musgraves and Chris Stapleton.
Radiohead, who is also headlining C3’s Lollapalooza in July, has already been in the news this week when their social-media accounts mysteriously “disappeared.” A few days later, the band released their first new music since 2011’s The King of Limbs in the form of a video for the song “Burn the Witch.”
The complete ACL poster is below; note that many more acts are playing one weekend only compared to years past.
Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. today at aclfestival.com.
