Over half a million festivalgoers with Austin City Limits tickets are expected to descend upon Zilker Park this fall following the news that Eminem, Pearl Jam and Outkast will headline its 13th annual outing.
Staged over the weekends of October 3-5 and 10-12, one of the must-see festivals on the US circuit today officially announced its impressive line-up, with Skrillex, Beck, Calvin Harris, Lana Del Rey, Foster The People, The Replacements and Zedd just some of the star names also confirmed to appear.
Eminem, who hinted at his appearance last week with a picture of his face photoshopped onto a cowboy with the message ‘Texas – Square Dance with me! Announcement coming 4/22’,’ will first play at ACL’s sister festival, Lollapalooza, on August 1 – tickets for which are available on TicketIQ at a get-in price of $150 and an average price of $251 (3-day passes $202/$479).
The rapper will then join Pearl Jam, who are set to embark on a European trek in June, and Outkast, who kicked off their 40-date reunion tour at Coachella earlier this month, at the top of the ACL bill for what promises to be a spectacular feast of live music.
Elsewhere, fans with Austin City Limits tickets can look forward to sets from the likes of Major Lazer, Belle & Sebastian, Chromeo, Broken Bells, Childish Gambino, CHVRCHES, Capital Cities, Paolo Nutini, Jimmy Cliff, Interpol, The Head and the Heart, The Avett Brothers and The Gaslight Anthem as well as several local acts including Asleep At The Wheel, Black Pistol Fire, Saints Of Valory and Blue Bear.
There are hundreds of three-day passes waiting to be snapped up on TicketIQ for both the first ($248/$615) and second weekend ($240/$637), with single day Austin City Limits tickets expected to go on sale later in the year.
