I’m Going to Austin City Limits 2009
I’ve been thinking about going to one of the music festivals this summer. All the ones that I saw near here were happening either a little too early (May/June) or a little too late (October). Plus, the lineups were pretty good, but there were only one or two artists that I really wanted to see at each event.
A week or two ago I found out that Pearl Jam was well on their way to finishing a new album and were rumored to be going on tour and also headlining Austin City Limits Music Festival this year. The ACL people didn’t want to confirm that Pearl Jam would be there, but they said it was the worst kept secret around. I went to the website and saw the bands they had confirmed so far. I put that with Pearl Jam and I decided that I need to book a hotel room right away, which I did. The official lineup came out around midnight this morning. It is great!
- Pearl Jam
- Dave Matthews Band
- Beastie Boys
- Ben Harper and Relentless7
- John Legend
- Mos Def
- The B-52s
- Sonic Youth
- Coheed and Cambria (don’t know much about them, interested in hearing them)
- The Virgins (a band I recently discovered)
- Lily Allen (I keep hearing her name, don’t know any songs)
You can check out the complete lineup here.
The festival takes place Oct. 2-4. Austin, here I come!
