With six weeks until Austin City Limits Music Festival, organizers came out with a number of big announcements on Tuesday.
The two-weekend Austin event first revealed its massive schedule of late night shows featuring some of the artists performing one or both weekends of the fest, including Ryan Adams, Run the Jewels, Spoon, Portugal. The Man, Tove Lo, Foster the People, James Vincent McMorrow, Louis the Child, Thundercat, Missio, Benjamin Booker, BADBADNOTGOOD, Mondo Cozmo, Crystal Castles, Muna, Whitney, Car Seat Headrest and more.
Tickets for most of the dates go on sale this Friday (Aug. 25) at 10 a.m. CST, but a pre-sale starts Thursday (Aug. 24) for individuals who subscribe to the C3 Concerts mailing list by tonight at 11:59 p.m. CST.
ACL also confirmed this year's festival grounds layout has been expanded to cover more of Zilker Park and hopefully improve crowd flow and sound-bleeding between stages, both of which have been issues in past years.
As a remedy, the grounds across Barton Springs Road, where the box office has previously been located, will become part of the main festival and host one of the stages, following a similar layout to sister fest Lollapalooza in Chicago, which stretches across closed roadways to allow for more space.
ACL is set for Oct. 6-8 and Oct. 13-15. See the late night shows schedule below.
