On Saturday, adolescent pop wunderkind Billie Eilish and Australian electro-dance outfit Rüfüs Du Sol take top billing, using"Hot Pink" rap star Doja Cat,'90s rockers Little Mouse and singer-songwriter Phoebe Bridgers enjoying support.
Grand dame of rock & roll Stevie Nicks and rap superstar DaBaby will close out the festival on Sunday with feminine music innovators St. Vincent and Erykah Badu playing sunset slots on Weekend 1 combined with Michigan rockers Greta Van Fleet. (Badu changes to Friday on Weekend 2.)
Chet Faker and Tanya Tucker combine the bill on Weekend 1, together with Lane 8, Durand Jones and also the Indications and Hinds on Weekend 2.
Austin's own Dayglow, who's been winning fans across the world with sunny pop anthems, plays Saturdays alongside Alison Wonderland, Future Islands and Jack Harlow.
Band of Horses, Marc Rebillet, Polo G, Madeon and Omar Apollo are all in for 2 weekends of Sundays. Jon Batiste, award-winning jazz musician and bandleader of Stephen Colbert's late night TV series, plays Weekend two, as does Trixie Mattel. Lane 8 and 070 Shake are about the Sunday bill on for Weekend 1.
A deeper look at each weekend's lineup indicates that there might be room for developments on the second Friday. Five of the festival's six days comprises 24 to 27 functions, but only 21 are currently listed for Oct. 8.
One domain conspicuously absent from this year's lineup is that the Barton Hills Choir, a local group of basic school singers that had played ACL Fest annually for the last decade. Choir director Gavin Tabone lately left Barton Hills Elementary but has continued to have some involvement with the choir.
In a public social media post following the lineup was announced last week, Tabone acknowledged he is"being bombarded with questions about ACL and the BHC. All I can tell you is please be patient"
ACL Fest occurs Oct. 1-3 and 8-10 in Zilker Park. Single-day tickets cost $135 for general admission, $250 for GA+, $550 for VIP and $2,100 for platinum passes.
