Austin City Limits Festival 2006

http://www.aclfestival.com


It's happening. 3 day passes went on sale yesterday, and I snapped up two of them today for a cool 240 bucks.

The actual lineup isn't announced until May, but some names (Son Volt, Kasey Chambers, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, The Subdudes and Buckwheat Zydeco) are all but sealed in, according to some sources.

Two other artists are also presumably confirmed, and these are the two I'm excited about:



and



You heard it here first. Iron & Wine and The Flaming Lips at your 2006 ACL Festival.


September 15-17




Moreover, here are some interesting bits from Wikipedia:

Quote:
Rumored acts are: Red Hot Chili Peppers, Radiohead, Sufjan Stevens, Fiona Apple, Calexico, Wilco, Bob Dylan, and Beck.


The Flaming Lips, Iron & Wine and The New Pornographers have confirmed on their websites that they are playing this year's festival. Pollstar.com lists Son Volt, Asleep at the Wheel, The Greencards and The Subdudes as performers for this year's festival. The official website has a scavenger hunt which allows people to search for the ACL Grackle on different artists websites with the help from a clue.

Just wait, LMP. It's going to get better than this.

I'll have a new confirmed act tomorrow morning and every morning for the next four days.

The Lips have seriously made the weekend for me already. It's not going to take a whole lot more for me to feel like the 120 was well spent, but Iron & Wine certainly doesn't hurt, and I'm also pretty sure Wilco will turn up, since they've been there every year since the festival began. Those three are enough for me, but I'm sure there's going to be a monster (coughRadioheadcough) that gets announced on May 11. Something amazing is going to happen, this festival doesn't disappoint.

It was, along with Wilco, the performance of the festival. I feel really lucky that I got to see them.


As promised, another band is confirmed this morning, and it's a damn good one.

The Shins!

I'll add a to that... I would love to see these guys live!

The rest of the "leaked" line up sounds kind of intriguing as well... I'll stayed tuned for Thursday's announcement

I really love Iron & Wine, but has anyone seen them live? I really have a hard time believing they can pull off the festival crowd. Their music is so quiet and soft, I just have a hard time picturing them at these festivals.

I just saw them last weekend. I was really impressed with every musician in the band (3). The drummer is a machine! Not the band you go to see if you want crowd-to-band banter. The Secret Machines show is very much all about the show and performance of the music speaks for itself. That's cool for me, and I can seperate that from say a band that plays and seems very aloof for an hour ( CYHSY).
