ACL Fest 2016: Willie Nelson, Chris Stapleton Among Headliners

The fest’s 15th anniversary also features Maren Morris, Kacey Musgraves and Margo Price among its country names

The lineup for the 15th anniversary of the Austin City Limits Festival has been revealed with some of country’s most celebrated, on-the-rise and fringe artists on the bill. Covering two consecutive weekends, the 2016 ACL Fest will take place September 30th – October 2nd and October 7th – 9th in Austin, Texas, with Willie Nelson and Chris Stapleton headlining alongside Radiohead, Mumford & Sons, Kendrick Lamar, LCD Soundsystem and more.

Also on a lineup which includes over 130 acts (some playing both weekends, some not) are country and Americana artists like Maren Morris, Kacey Musgraves, Margo Price, Anderson East, Asleep at the Wheel, Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats, Aubrie Sellers, Amanda Shires and LANCO. Joined by some of the biggest names in rock, folk, electronica and hip hop, they’ll transform the picturesque Zilker Park into a city of its own with about 100,000 music loving inhabitants, bordered by the banks of the peaceful Colorado River and the famous Barton Springs swimming hole and featuring sweeping views of the Texas capital.

Fans can expect a full-on festival experience once again, with eight stages to choose from, a variety of food and drink vendors, an art market and a mini-fest just for the kids. The only thing ACL Fest doesn’t really offer is camping, but that just makes Austin itself your campground.

Tickets for both weekends are on sale now, starting at $255 for a three day pass (passes for each weekend sold separately), with VIP and platinum experience options also available.
