ACL Fest is the theme of this week’s BrooklynVegan Blog Radio on SiriusXMU

ACL Fest Day 1 (more by Tim Griffin)

This year’s Austin City Limits Festival (ACL) is gearing up for weekend number two (October 7-9). Once again, it is happening at Zilker Park in Austin,Texas. Like Coachella, when throwing a festival over the course of two weekends, promoters need to make sure the bill is packed, not only with big name headliners that could potentially draw repeat attendees, but the “undercard” has to be on point, as well. ACL has definitely pulled that off this year. Headliners over the course of the three days are Radiohead (final show of their US tour), LCD Soundsystem, Kendrick Lamar, Mumford & Sons and Willie Nelson! Amongst the other acts are Major Lazer, Haim, LL Cool J, Cold War Kids, Anderson Paak, Flume, The Front Bottoms and many more! Stacked.

In honor of the ACL Fest, this week’s BrooklynVegan Blog Radio show on SiriusXM will be dedicated to the Texas festival. Over the course of the two hours, the show will feature nothing but headliners and artists from this year’s lineup. It airs today (October 5) at Noon and Midnight Eastern on SiriusXMU (Ch. 35) and is also available OnDemand with the SiriusXM app. Playlist is below.

Meanwhile, check out pics from the first day of ACL weekend 1 with headliners Radiohead.
