It’s pretty much a given every year during the Austin City Limits Music Festival that at least a couple of the performers will stick around between the two weekends to tape the festival’s namesake television show at ACL Live. This year’s models are now set: Band of Horses on Saturday, Oct. 2; Margo Price on Sunday, Oct. 3; and Foals on Thursday, Oct. 6.

It’s the second visit to the show for South Carolina indie-folk group Band of Horses, who first appeared six years ago. They’re scheduled for both Fridays of ACL Fest, which runs Sept. 30-Oct. 2 and Oct. 7-9. This will be the first time on “Austin City Limits” for both Foals, also booked for both Fridays at the fest, and Price, who’ll play both Sundays (as well as at Willie Nelson’s Fourth of July Picnic at Circuit of the Americas).

Check the program’s website for details on each show. Tickets generally are distributed about a week before the date of the taping, with notices posted to the show’s social media pages.
