The Austin City Limits Music Festival has revealed the lineup and schedule for ACL Fest 2020, a free three-night broadcast event taking place Oct. 9-11 beginning at 7 p.m. CT each evening, exclusively on YouTube. The weekend long celebration will feature music and appearances by Paul McCartney, Radiohead, Billie Eilish, Willie Nelson, St. Vincent, My Morning Jacket, Alabama Shakes, Black Pumas, Matthew McConaughey, and many more.
In celebration of the iconic annual two-weekend festival, ACL Fest fans will get to relive memorable past sets captured in Zilker Park and unique original programming and contributions from the entire Austin City Limits family. As part of ACL Fest 2020, Austin Parks Foundation will showcase Austin-based artists filmed in unique park locations across the city, including Mélat from the Zilker Botanical Gardens, Jackie Venson from Pan Am Neighborhood Park, Los Coast from the Zilker Clubhouse and Otis the Destroyer performing at Heath Eiland and Morgan Moss BMX Skatepark.
The festival will also feature classic tapings from Austin City Limits TV, a behind-the-scenes tour of ACL Live, and backstage artist interviews from ACL Radio. And in true ACL Fest tradition, the broadcast will shine a spotlight on the best of the region, including tips from Texas BBQ greats Valentina’s Tex Mex BBQ, LeRoy & Lewis and SLAB BBQ, an appearance by Austin’s own Louisianna Purchase, and a special performance from the Barton Hills Choir. Fans can also look forward to special appearances by Austin Mayor Steve Adler, Matthew McConaughey, Andy Roddick, Bryan Stevenson, Shakey Graves, Donn Adelman, Vince Young, and Ricky Williams.
