The Austin City Limits Music Festival is returning to the Lone Star State in 2017, bringing two weekends of great music to Austin’s Zilker Park in the fall. And today, festival organizers shared the 2017 lineup and it’s stacked!
Headlining ACL this year will be the Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Killers, Gorillaz and Chance The Rapper. The festival’s talented cast of headliners will be in good company as well, as Ryan Adams, Solange, The xx, Ice Cube, Martin Garrix, The Head and the Heart, Run The Jewels, Vance Joy, Tove Lo, Skepta, Crystal Castles, Milky Chance, Louis The Child and many more are also set to perform. While some of the supporting artists are only performing for one of the weekends, most artists will perform for both weekends of ACL, so you can’t go wrong.
The Austin City Limits Music Festival will take place from October 6-8th and October 13-15th. Fans can get tickets and more information at the festival’s official website.

Kicking off on July 8th at Chicago’s Hunting Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island, the Gorillaz will embark on their first North American tour in over half a decade. The Gorillaz are on the verge of the release of their new album, after surprising fans with the news of its release, so the band will have a lot of new material to perform come this summer. The tour is currently scheduled to make stops in Detroit, Toronto, Los Angeles, Atlanta and more, until their first tour in seven years concludes in Miami through the middle of October.
Tickets for most dates on the tour will go on sale April 21st, and all tickets will include a copy of the Gorillaz’ new LP (either physical or digital), with the exception of some date. You shouldn’t miss out on either the new tour or the new CD, so you have no excuse to miss out!

Music fans have been more than excited that a new Gorillaz LP is currently under works, and we have now learned that a familiar face in Chicago is likely working on the new and highly anticipated project. Hours ago, Gorillaz-affiliated producer Remi Kabaka (voice of the Gorillaz’s Russel Hobbs) posted a photo of Vic in the studio in Chicago. While we can’t say for sure whether they were all working on the Gorillaz’s forthcoming album, it’s a definite possibility. This may seem like an unlikely collaboration on the surface, but Mensa definitely is a rock star, as much as he is a rapper. Whether it’s providing feedback or a guest feature, a Vic and Gorillaz record would be amazing.
