ACL Fest – The Lineup is Out!

May 19, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

For those that aren’t familiar with the Austin City Limits (ACL) Festival, it is one of the best times you will ever have in a city park. Smack dab in the middle of Austin, the Live Music Capital of the World, is Zilker Park. And for three days in October, 100,000 music fans descend on the grounds to hear 100+ bands play, sample from some of Austin finest cuisine and shop at some of Austin’s coolest local shops. All in the middle of the 3rd largest city park in the U.S.

Why are we talking about ACL Fest right now when it is still a few months away? The list of bands playing the Fest has been announced and it is something to behold.

Headlining the 3 day concert are the Eagles, Muse, MIA, Phish and The Flaming Lips.

My favorite part of ACL would be the amazing bands that are still very high profile, but aren’t at the top of the list. Norah Jones, Band of Horses, Vampire Weekend, Sonic Youth, Robert Earl Keen, Pat Green, Asleep at the Wheel, Ryan Bingham, Blues Traveler and the list goes on.

Three day passes to the event sold out before the line up was released. One day passes will start disappearing as well. Insider tip: wait until the concert gets closer and either buy a wristband from someone who can’t go or go to the event with cash in hand and buy a ticket at the gate. Always works!

Watch a short video below from the ACL producers about this year’s lineup. Kind of hokey, but fun!
