Festival season is set to get going. In the coming weeks, Bonnaroo and Rolling Loud are set to return after taking last year off due to the COVID-19 pandemic. More recently, Lollapalooza and Governors Ball rolled out their lineups. Now, ACL Fest is planning to make a return.
ACL Fest will return to the state of Texas in October. This time around, Texas natives George Strait, Megan Thee Stallion and Erykah Badu will perform. Adding to the event, DaBaby, Jack Harlow, Tierra Whack, Doja Cat, Toosii, Machine Gun Kelly, 070 Shake and AG Club are set to perform.
“Music is coming back strong to the Live Music Capital of the World,” Austin Mayor Steve Adler said.
“The return of Austin City Limits as an in-person festival celebrates that our efforts as a community to become vaccinated are working. Health and safety remain our top priority, and we will work closely with the organizers and Austin Public Health to ensure ACL Fest is in line with our health standards. We must continue to get everyone vaccinated and keep up our success.”
The first set of shows will take place between October 1st and October 3rd. ACL Fest will return for a second weekend in mid-October. Check out the full lineup below.
