Just in time to cure my Coachella blues, ACL 2017 has announced that next Thursday they will release their lineup at 6 a.m. and the tickets for Austin City Limits 2017 will go on sale at 10 a.m. This is standard timing for Austin City Limits as last year for ACL 2016 they released their lineup and passes on May 5th. Passes for Austin City Limits go fast, but it's not quite as quick as Coachella or Lollapalooza. You can read our full guide on ACL passes here.
Technically it seems Austin City Limits has a big 6, so let's have some fun and try to predict those. I have no inside information and this is just specualtion for Austin City Limits on my part.
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Mexico City dates between ACL weekends make me assume we will see them there
Gorillaz - Seems likely based on tour dates and no Texas dates
Arcade Fire - A man can dream, can't he? ACL typically shares 1 and sometimes 2 headliners with Lollapalooza. I am guessing it's two this year and Arcade Fire will be one of them
Chance the Rapper - Same reasoning as above
Lorde - Lorde is this year's festival darling with her playing literally every music festival in the country
Odesza - Austin City Limits typically has an EDM headliner, and Odesza is due for ACL
Again, no inside information but that's my prediction. We will see how wrong I am next Thursday when Austin City Limits drop their much anticipated lineup!
