Austin’s premier music festival Austin City Limits has released their single day lineup with some impressive new additions. The array of talent for the 18th installment of ACL is stellar with headliners Guns N’ Roses, Tame Impala, Childish Gambino, The Cure, Mumford & Sons, Cardi B, and more.
Friday of both weekends, Guns N’ Roses will play their first show in Austin since 1993 and their first-ever ACL Fest performances. The level of excitement for the Gun N’ Roses appearance in Austin is evident. Friday will also host extraordinary sets from Tame Impala, The Raconteurs, Thom Yorke Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes, Tyler Childers, King Princess, RL Grime, Jenny Lewis, and more. RL Grime will bring his signature dark bass heavy beats to the stage of ACL and this will no doubt be an outstanding set. On the heels of his release “Nova Pure” which is out this month, we are eager to hear what he has in store!
Heavy-hitters Childish Gambino and The Cure will close out Saturday of both weekends, as well as sets from breakout star Billie Eilish, Gary Clark Jr., James Blake, 21 Savage, Kali Uchis, Lauren Daigle, Hippie Sabotage, Mexican pop superstar Natalia Lafourcade, and more. Fans are thrilled to have Childish Gambino back at ACL after having to cancel his 2018 appearance due to injury. Hometown favorite Gary Clark Jr. is also a not to miss set. He is always outstanding but when he performs for his hometown it’s something special.
Fans won’t want to miss sets on each Sunday from Mumford & Sons, Cardi B (Weekend One), Robyn (Weekend Two), Kacey Musgraves, Lizzo, Lil Uzi Vert, Third Eye Blind, Rebelution, and many more. Cardi B’s sets are consistently something to talk about. She mesmerizes on the stage and her level of energy makes you feel like you are a part of the performance.
New additions to this year’s lineup bring both established and rising stars to the bill. Metric, Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors, Orville Peck, hit-songwriter and artist Wrabel, The Score, BONES UK, Mahalia, singer-songwriter and producer Mallrat, The Beaches, The Aquadolls, and Taela add a diverse range of sounds to an already stacked lineup. This fest always gives fans an opportunity to discover new artists and this year is no exception.
ACL is also an all ages event. Kids 10 and under will be admitted free of charge when accompanied by an adult ticket holder. Come expose your kids to the magic of live music and implant the seed of love and energy of the family festival experience.
