There's been an eruption of Austin City Limits rumors about Kanye West and Stevie Wonder headlining or being featured after someone posted a photo of the June "Summer Live" issue of SPIN magazine showing those acts.
Although early bird tickets and 3-day passes are now sold out, there are still plenty of 1 day passes for Austin City Limits tickets left. VIP tickets are available as 3-day passes and include catered food, gourmet happy hour (beer / wine / drinks), spa treatments (because festivals can be sooo stressful), air conditioned chill areas and special parking. VIP tickets go for $850.
This will be the tenth anniversary of the Austin City Limits Music Festival, so it looks like some big events will be planned to honor the decade. The dates for the Austin City Limits Music Festival are Sept. 16-18, 2011, in Zilker Park in Austin, TX.
The ACL Scratch-off Lottery had already revealed ACL lineup choices like Fleet Foxes, Chromeo, Cee-Lo Green, Delta Spirit and more. Officially known as the "ACL Lineup Lottery," Austin City Limits organizers decided to do the scratch-off lottery as a fun way to reveal the ACL lineup and create a buzz around the lineup announcement. The Austin City Limits Twitter page has also been announcing locations in Austin to buy the scratch-off tickets, and Arcade Fire was confirmed on Friday as a headliner from a ticket at the Do512 Lounge. Radiohead and Soundgarden were also rumored before the lineup announcement.
