Austin City Limits 2017 Lineup Predictions

Photo curtesy of: veryhelpful.net

As you already know from following my blogs religiously, I have attended the Austin City Limits music festival for the past two years and I plan to attend the festival again this year. The official lineup for the festival is set to be released Thursday, May 4th so now seems like the perfect time to discuss the artists I anticipate to see on the lineup announcement!

I have combed through countless Reddit threads, compared festival lineups, tracked touring artists and accounted for nearby venue performances. All of my painstaking Nancy Drew-esque research has lead me to some solid guess work and the following conclusions.

In 2016 ACL and Coachella shared many performers such as; LCD Soundsystem, Foals, Major Lazer, G-Eazy and volumes more. Using the 2017 Coachella lineup as an outline, while accounting for the artists who will still be touring in October, and referencing nearby venues, I have the following lineup guesses.

Red Hot Chili Peppers

Gorillaz

Lorde

The Killers

Glass Animals

Father John Misty

Gary Clark Jr.

Portugal. The Man

Chance the Rapper

Arcade Fire

Those guesses are the closest I can come to an official lineup until May 4th satisfies us all. Hopefully I will get a couple of these right and I’ll earn some bragging rights. Here is the ACL website for when the lineup is announced.

Thank you for reading and listening!
