Rising star Sturgill Simpson and country legend Dwight Yoakam are among the top acts at this year’s Austin City Limits Music Festival.
The lineup for the 2015 ACL music festival has been released, and it includes some of our favorite country acts, including Sturgill Simpson, Dwight Yoakam, Shakey Graves, as well as Asleep at the Wheel and William Clark Green. The ACL Music Festival is usually heavy on indy-rock, pop and heritage rock acts, so it’s good to see some country blood in the mix.
Sturgill Simpson will likely draw a large audience, as he did during his run of three sold out Austin shows in April. Dwight Yoakam has a huge following in the Lone Star State and is no stranger to playing to Texas audiences. And, Shakey Graves is Austin’s own, so it’s sort of a homecoming for him.
The ACL Music Festival is set for Oct. 2-4 and Oct. 9-11 at the beautiful Zilker Park in Austin, Texas.
3-day passes are available for $250. Click here for tickets.
