An epic weekend of music is ahead for fans attending the 14th annual Austin City Limits Music Festival in Austin, Texas, USA – and those of us at home will get the chance to see quite a few of the performances ourselves thanks to the live stream. Each day there is a myriad of incredible performances to choose from – and here are our picks for the first day of the first weekend of the incredible event.
Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas
2pm on the BMI Stage
Easily one of the most exciting up and coming artists set to play the event…
2pm on the Samsung Stage
Still touring their much acclaimed debut LP, Royal Blood, the UK band are at the top of their game right now – delivering high powered festival sets that are only getting better. We apologise for giving you a clash so early in the day – do try and see half an hour of each!
4pm on the Honda Stage
The soul runs strong in Leon Bridges – one of the most exciting emerging acts in the world right now. Don’t miss your chance to see Leon before he becomes one of the biggest acts in the world!
5pm on the HomeAway Stage
We’re finally starting to get snippets of the long awaited follow-up to 2009’s Daisy at their shows. As much as we love the old jams, it’s all the more exciting knowing we might be getting a taste of what’s coming next! Here’s the only recording we have so far:
6pm on the Honda Stage
Brandon recently treated fans at the Life is Beautiful festival to a surprise Killers reunion. Will he deliver a similar set at ACL? We couldn’t say, but either way his sets have been very well received – it should make for a highlight of the day either way!
8pm on the Samsung Stage
Because, obviously. Dave of Thrones on the Broken Leg tour… before he’s out of the cast, don’t miss what is set to be a unique Foo Fighters experience.
And also look out for Australia very well represented by Tame Impala – who are no strangers to the event, Billy Idol, Run The Jewels, Gary Clark Jr. and much, much more…
