Music lovers looking for a good time should head down to Texas and 'keep things weird' for the first few weekends in October. It has just been announced that Red Hot Chili Peppers, Gorillaz, Chance the Rapper, and The Killers will be headlining this year's Austin City Limits. The festival will take place over two weekends, October 6th to 8th and 13th to 15th, later this year at Zilker Park in Austin.
Austin's fall festival seems to be rivaling the Texas capital's spring multi-week extravaganza, South by Southwest, at this point. In the fall, artists from across the genre spectrum will head down to that little blueberry in the middle of red Texas for two weekends of fun. Also taking the stage at the event will be Martin Garrix, A$AP Ferg and Danny Brown, Bonobo and Zhu, Car Seat Headrest and Whitney. Solange will be holding up the R&B end of the spectrum, while Skip Marley will bring a touch of reggae to listeners.
Those who have come to love the festival for its country roots need not worry. The likes of Asleep at the Wheel, Cody Jinks, and Dale Watson will all be making appearances.
Tickets for Austin City Limits go on sale May 4th at 10 a.m. CST through the festival's website. Unlike some of its competitors, ACL is an all-ages affair, and children under the age of 10 get in for free if they are accompanied by a ticketed adult.
