Moments ago, the Austin City Limits Music Festival announced its lineup for the 10th-anniversary weekend, scheduled for Sept. 16-18 in Zilker Park. Top names include Stevie Wonder, Coldplay, Kanye West, and Bright Eyes.
Previously announced via the festival's first-ever scratch-off "lineup lottery," which began last week at various Austin-area businesses, were Arcade Fire, My Morning Jacket, Fleet Foxes, Empire Earth, Delta Spirit, J Roddy Walston & the Business, Cee-Lo Green, Chromeo, Empire of the Sun, Smith Westerns, Hayes Carll, Iron & Wine, Mavis Staples, The Head and the Heart and Alexander.
All three-day packages for the festival have sold out. Single-day tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. today at aclfestival.com, so get those refreshers ready. But there's plenty of time for that in a few hours. This year's complete lineup is after the jump.
