As reported earlier this year, Austin City Limits is another festival ripping a page from Coachella's successful playbook in expanding the music event to two identical weekends. Now ACL is official in the calendar next year, with it taking place Oct. 4-6 and Oct. 11-13.
Festivities will again be held in Austin's Zilker park, and some super-secret "souvenir" 3-day badges have already been let loose, for $50 a piece. However, ACL e-newsletter subscribers will get a chance to purchase early bird tickets to the typically sold-out event on Oct. 30 (this month).
The lineup this year featured headliners Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Black Keys, Jack White and Neil Young and Crazy Horse.
