Only hours ago, Jay Z was squeezed onto the Austin City Limits festival line up ahead of the likes of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Chance the Rapper, The Killers and sis-in-law Solange – an exciting return from the New York King who is currently popping up on a few huge stages throughout the year.
Of course, ACL is a huge drawcard for many heading to Austin, Texas in October – the two weekender long festival has always pulled together the names to warrant the trip and with the 2017 line up being unveiled overnight, it’s obvious they’re sticking to this same formula.
Taking a look down the line up, the contingent of Australian and New Zealand artists ACL-bound is healthy, including Cut Copy and festival stalwarts Alison Wonderland, Broods and RÜFÜS, as well as trailblazing exports Tash Sultana, Middle Kids, Vance Joy and Amy Shark.
Austin City Limits takes place at Zilker Park on October 6th-8th and October 13th-15th. Tickets are on sale now via www.aclfestival.com.
