BMI is presenting its seventeenth curated lineup for the 2019 Austin City Limits Music Festival taking place Oct. 4-6 and 11-13, in Austin’s Zilker Park. Among the artists playing are Patrick Droney, Ingrid Andress, Chris Shifflet, Wrabel, and more.
Weekend one kicks off with indie-pop songwriter, Weyes Blood, while Nashville storyteller Droney will bring his brand of blues, folk, and pop. Up-and-coming country artist Andress, Canadian hard rock band cleopatrick, and folk-pop singer-songwriter Faye Webster will also round out the first weekend’s lineup. On October 10th, BMI will bring its signature Howdy Texas event back to Yeti’s flagship store on South Congress. The party will feature the quirky pop singer-songwriter Caroline Rose, alongside local DJ Jonathan Terrell.
Rolling into weekend two, the stage will feature Chris Shifflet of Foo Fighters, with his raucous country-rock band fresh off the release of his latest solo project. Pop singer-songwriter Wrabel, self-produced Austin-based Dayglow, bilingual singer/rapper Kat Dahlia, and alternative rock duo The Score complete the dynamic lineup.
“We’re so excited to celebrate our first ACL since the opening of our new Austin office earlier this year,” says Mason Hunter, AVP Creative, Nashville. “This has been a historic year for BMI and we’re so thankful to our partners at C3 for allowing us to continue investing in Austin’s music scene.”
For well over a decade, the BMI stage has had a hand in launching some of music’s biggest stars on the staple ACL stage, including memorable performances from Miranda Lambert (‘03), Alessia Cara (‘15), Luke Combs (‘16), City and Colour (‘08), Gary Clark, Jr. (‘11), Shakey Graves (‘13), Jon Pardi (‘11, ‘14), Catfish and the Bottlemen (‘14), lovelytheband (‘18), and Maren Morris (‘16), who went on to win a Grammy within a year of appearing on the BMI ACL stage.
