Who is ready for the 16th annual Austin City Limits Festival? I know I am! This year ACL returns to Austin’s Zilker Park over two weekends: October 6 – 8 and October 13 – 15. The line has been revealed and people are going crazy over it!
ACL is a huge attraction for the city of Austin. Historically, they have never disappointed with their line up but this year they have taken things to a whole new level. JAY-Z, who is undeniably one of the best rap stars on the planet, was added as the headliner. The last time Jay Z came to Austin was during SXSW in 2014. This is the festival that everybody has been talking about and people are starting to speculate that he will be bringing Beyoncé with him, especially considering the fact that Solange will be in attendance as well!
Other headliners for this year's festival include The Red Hot Chili Peppers, who played ACL back in 2012, Chance the Rapper, a rising star of our time who you've probably just caught at Austins recent festival, JMBLYA and last but not least: Gorillaz, Martin Garrix, The xx and The Killers will all be headlining as well.
I'm so excited to see the outcome of this event as it's a new experience for me each time I attend. October will be sneaking up on us real soon, time for the countdown!!
