    Default Austin City Limits 2008

    Lineup to be released on April 15

    ACL lineup to be announced April 15

    By Michael Corcoran | Wednesday, March 19, 2008, 10:02 AM

    C3 Presents booker Charles Attal says the lineup for the 7th annual Austin City Limits Festival will be announced April 15, almost a month earlier than last year. Tickets will not go up then; they’re already selling at a top tier of $170 for all three days, Sept. 26- 28.

    Let the unusually quiet rumor mill begin.

    So, Lolla will release theirs just right after the presale on march 25th?

    People care, but lets get that one out of the way. C3 got em for Lolla and Im sure thats good enough to make them happy, but some peopel would be hopeful in thinking they would stick around another month in the u.s. to play ACL.

    no, I dont, if they played it I wouldnt go, they would make up the stupidest set times like last year and put them up against another really great act which is just lame.

    Too hot & humid there plus there's too many obnoxius old people with their chairs. Public transpo and parking (in and out of the festival) are disasters too.

    good point.

    I also thought about not coming back never again because those chairs all around the stages.

    I rode a bike to the fest two of the three days, so there wasn't any problem at all.

    I would knock over all those chairs, eff them.... I was watching some ACL stuff on PBS one night and just was a little suprised by it.

    ThomThom, arent you glad we are going to Texas, but luckily not to this festival?

    My guess:

    R.E.M., Tom Petty, Flaming Lips

    I completely agree about getting in and out of the place, and the humidity, and the chairs, ugh.

    We too rode bikes last year but the wall to wall people after Bjork was impenetrable without running people over..which we did a little bit.

    The fact that they have in-and-outs is freat, especially if you good swimming in Barton Springs.

    Lines in have never been a problem for me. Getting out is fine, if you don't count on taking the shuttles. It's about a 25-minute walk to 6th, and very worth it.

    The chairs derelict my balls. Man, do I hate those chairs.

    But being able to take your beer everywhere almost makes up for it.

    God ACL has sucked balls for the last 2 years now. The fact that Muse headlined last year was the only true gem of the festival and that was unexpected due to the White Stripes fiasco.

    If acl doesn't snubb the EDM scene this year and brings in acts that are actually relevant rather than gather artists that only fit the ""acl" brand name then maybe I would consider coming back, but only once a line up has been released.

    acl is a hot, humid, and certainly dusty environment. They don't water that park enough to maintain a grassy field and they need to take care of the ANTS that infest that place as well.
    By the way I completely agree about the chairs that pop up everywhere around the stages and makes it that much harder for people getting thru a fucking maze of chairs, and then people get pissy for stepping either over them or on their stuff!!

    I live here also and would like to be proud of a festival held in my own back yard. The 15th can't come soon enough, maybe this year we have some real hope of a good lineup.
