Recent Pollstar cover artists, Wet Leg, will be joining the festival on Weekend 2, while TikTok sensation GAYLE is among those who will perform on the festival’s first weekend.

Austin City Limits managed to make its return in 2021, with George Strait, Billie Eilish, Stevie Nicks, Miley Cyrus, Rüfüs Du Sol, Tyler, The Creator, and Erykah Badu topping the festival’s lineup. Megan Thee Stallion, Doja Cat, Machine Gun Kelly, Black Pumas, Greta Van Fleet, Phoebe Bridgers, Jack Harlow and more also all made appearances.
