Pearl Jam, Beastie Boys, Dave Matthews Lead Austin City Festival

April 28, 2009 9:08 AM ET

Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews Band and the Beastie Boys will headline this year's Austin City Limits festival, taking place in the Texas capital's Zilker Park October 2-4th. The eclectic bill also includes current Rolling Stone cover stars Kings of Leon, Sonic Youth, Ben Harper and Relentless7, the Dead Weather, Arctic Monkeys and over 150 more acts from the world of rock, rap, folk and blues.

If a festival headlined by Pearl Jam, DMB and the Beasties sound familiar, there's a good reason for it: The three bands will also be the marquee acts at San Francisco's Outside Lands festival. For Pearl Jam, the ACL show is only the second announced date on their U.S. itinerary. DMB is spending the entire summer on the road in support of Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King and the Beastie Boys are pretty much playing anything that has the word "Festival" in it, booking slots at Lollapalooza and All Points West.

Grizzly Bear, the B-52's, Girl Talk, Bon Iver, Lily Allen, the Levon Helm Band, Toadies and tons more will be on hand for the three-day event, with tickets priced at $185. Full lineup below.

Song Stories

“Fantasy”

Mariah Carey | 1995

Serendipity stuck when Mariah Carey rediscovered the glitchy Tom Tom Club hook, a sample of which is the heart of this upbeat slice of dance pop. "I had the melody idea for 'Fantasy' and I was listening to the radio and heard 'Genius of Love,' and I hadn't heard it in a long time," Carey said. "It reminded me of growing up and listening to the radio and that feeling the song gave me seemed to go with the melody and basic idea I had for 'Fantasy.' I initially told [co-writer] Dave Hall about the idea, and we did it. We called up the Tom Tom Club and they were really into it."
