X Games organizers timed the line-up announcement to coincide with the ticket sale launch knowing how much live music means to Austin fans. We have to admit at Examiner interest in the extreme sport event that has been taking place since the late 1990's was lukewarm until the list of artists performing was revealed this week.

We included the badass X Games bid video that helped Austin land the X Games for the first time. Check it out on the left sidebar.

The 14,000 seat Austin360 Amphitheater which is situated on the grounds of the Circuit of Americas just completed it's first season last year with performances by Avett Brothers, Dave Matthews Band, Jimmy Buffett among others. Arcade Fire are scheduled to play the venue in April. There are 6,700 reserved seats and a gigantic lawn for music fans. The venue is located about 20 minutes southeast of downtown Austin.
