ACL Fest announces day-by-day lineup

In accordance with the release of single-day passes at 10 a.m. Wednesday, the Austin City Limits Music Festival has released the day-by-day schedule of acts for both the Oct. 3-5 and Oct. 10-12 weekends.

Headliners on Friday include Outkast, Beck, Foster the People and Belle & Sebastian. Saturday’s top names include Eminem, Skrillex, Lana Del Rey and Major Lazer. Sunday appears geared to attract more old-school rock fans, with Pearl Jam, the Replacements and Spoon among the big draws. Lorde, the one major act appearing only on the second weekend, is slotted for Sunday, Oct. 12.

The day-by-day schedules also reveal more specifics about local acts that aren’t performing on both weekends. Friday, Oct. 3, features Asleep at the Wheel, while Wheel leader Ray Benson teams with MilkDrive on Friday, Oct. 10.  Exclusives on Saturday, Oct. 4, include Johnnyswim and Mike & the Moonpies, with Saturday, Oct. 11, including the Nightowls and Riders Against the Storm. The lineup for Sunday, Oct. 5, includes Dawn & Hakes and the Gospel Silvertones, while Sunday, Oct. 12, is the lone date for Emily Wolfe and the Stapletones.

Single-day passes are $90. Complete day-by-day listings are posted on the ACL Fest lineup page. Full schedule grids with times are still in the works, with tentative plans for them to be released later this month.
