Coldplay, Wilco, the Black Crowes, Oasis, Franz Ferdinand, the Allman Brothers, Death Cab for Cutie and Jimmy Cliff are set to play the fourth annual Austin City Limits Music Festival this fall. The eight-stage event will take place in Austin's Zilker Park September 23rd to 25th.
Of the 130 bands in the lineup, featured acts include country talents Lucinda Williams, Lyle Lovett, John Prine and Kathleen Edwards; blues master Buddy Guy; rockers Jet; indie veterans Built to Spill, Spoon, Bob Mould and Sleater-Kinney; and younger indie talents the Arcade Fire, Bloc Party, the Walkmen, Rilo Kiley, the Decemberists, the Futureheads, Tegan and Sara, Jason Mraz, Black Keys, and Ambulance Ltd.
The festival, which began in 2002, is named for the PBS music show, Austin City Limits, and last year brought in an audience of about 210,000 people. This year, the maximum capacity will be reduced to 60,000 per day to prevent overcrowding.
