Austin City Limits Lineup
Eminem's big Texas surprise rocks the music world: Festival season suddenly has attitude
Austin City Limits Music Festival will return to the capital city's Zilker Park in October for its 13th incarnation. Festival programmers have ended the headliner guessing game with the release of the full 2014 lineup.
Headlining the two-weekend festival (taking place October 3 to 5 and 10 to 12) is Eminem — in his only 2014 performance in the Southwest. Pearl Jam, Outkast, Skrillex and Beck also take top billing spots, alongside Foster the People, The Replacements, Lana Del Rey and Zedd. Lorde joins for a special second weekend performance.
Additional noteworthy bands joining the ACL lineup this year include festival favorites Major Lazer, The Avett Brothers, Spoon, The Head and the Heart, Belle & Sebastian, Chvrches and St. Vincent.
As is tradition with the Austin-born festival, local bands pepper each weekend's lineup. Austin performers include Asleep at the Wheel (a festival staple), Saints of Valory, Black Pistol Fire, Blue Bear, Wood & Wire, Emily Wolfe, The Nightowls, Dawn and Hawkes, Mike and the Moon Pies, Sphynx, Penny & Sparrow, Riders Against the Storm, Hard Proof and Arum Rae.
Three-day passes for the first and second weekend are now on sale for $225 each.
