It's still six months away, but Austin City Limits Music Festival is making big headlines today. On April 30, the Texas-based event announced its blockbuster lineup for 2019, complete with music legends, hometown heroes, and Cardi B.
ACL takes over Austin's Zilker Park October 4-6 and October 11-13. This year's headliners include Guns N’ Roses, Mumford & Sons, Childish Gambino, The Cure, and Cardi B (Weekend One), Billie Eilish, Tame Impala, and Robyn (Weekend Two).
Additional bombshell acts include Kacey Musgraves, The Raconteurs, Gary Clark Jr., Lizzo, Thom Yorke's Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes, James Blake, Lil Uzi Vert, 21 Savage, Tyler Childers, Third Eye Blind (Weekend Two), Rebelution, GRiZ, RL Grime, Jenny Lewis, BANKS, The Kooks (Weekend One), Bruce Hornsby & The Noisemakers, and Chris Shiflett. The full lineup poster can be found here.
As has become the custom, organizers teased the 2019 musical roster through a series of social media posts, this year using Magic Eye-style puzzles to drop hints. Over the past week, fans pored over the images looking for clues, which revealed, among others, 21 Savage, Kacey Musgraves, and Childish Gambino, who was forced to cancel last year following an injury.
Passes for the festival go on sale at noon April 30, and are priced between $260-$500 for three-day general admission and GA-plus, $1,200 for three-day VIP, and $3,600 for three-day Platinum. Other options, ranging from one-day tickets to group passes, are also available.
