Early Tuesday (6 a.m. CST) Austin City Limits Music Festival (ACL Festival) announced the 2014 lineup for the 13th edition of the fest named for the iconic PBS television show. Last year the festival changed formats, moving to consecutive weekends a la Coachella Festival. Marquee names on the just released bill include Eminem, Outkast, Pearl Jam, Beck, Skrillex and Lorde. Below you will find our top five headliners and details about the artists.
A new feature of the lineup is the EDM-heavy listing of artists. We chose to stick to more traditional ACL Festival genres in our preview. A follow-up story on local acts appearing at the festival will cover acts that fall into the electronic/hip hop arena.
C3 Presents the company that produces ACL Festival and Lollapalooza put three-day tickets on sale yesterday as well. There are options to purchase two levels of upgraded passes, VIP and Platinum. Only pricey Platinum tickets will allow fans on the main stage viewing areas. The festival will take place October 3-5 and 10-12. At the time of this article's publishing tickets for both weekends remained available.
