ACL Festival 2015 schedules revealed
The 2015 ACL Festival returns from October 2-4 and October 9-11, and the schedules for both weekends have been revealed.
There are a few conflicts in there. Friday you’ll have to chose between fast-rising soul singer Leon Bridges and punk/new wave vet Billy Idol; as well as furious rap duo Run the Jewels and post-hardcore bashers Brand New.
Saturday, charismatic performer Father John Misty overlaps with rapper of the moment Vince Staples. Weekend one puts blues rockers Alabama Shakes against folk singer Jose Gonzalez and psychedelic rapper A$AP Rocky, while weekend two has that same conflict except Modest Mouse instead of the Shakes.
Sunday it’s between shapeshiting rapper Chance the Rapper and laid-back guitar master Kurt Vile. Weekend one has headliners The Weeknd going against The Strokes, and on weekend two it’s The Weeknd vs Florence + the Machine.
