ACL 2011: Friday's Lineup of Coldplay, Kanye and more

The first day of ACL was topped by what might have been the festival's biggest gamble � Kayne West. Despite problems with sound quality, Kanye ultimately won over the crowd, but not before artists like Cults, Mavis Staples and Smith Westerns had a chance to warm the audience up. Also see our slideshow of crowd shots. For full ACL coverage, check out the Rocks Off music blog. PHOTOS BY MARCO TORRES AND JIM BRICKER
