Austin City Limits music fest. reveals line-up

You can now add the Austin City Limits music festival to your busy concert calendar, as the 3 day event just announced their full line-up. Taking place this Oct. 2-4 in Austin, Tx's Zilker Park, the music marathon will feature 130 bands spread out over 8 different stages. The trend towards the retro headliners continues (see Lollapalooza) , with headlining acts this year featuring Pearl Jam, Ben Harper, Dave Matthews Band, Beastie Boys, Thievery Corporation, and the more recent Kings Of Leon.
The ACL's mid level acts seem to be a real source of strength, ranging from bands like Arctic Monkeys, Sonic Youth, Blitzen Trapper and Bon Iver, to School Of Seven Bells, DeVotchKa, The Walkmen, Deer Tick, The Dodos, Girl Talk and Here We Go Magic.
Tickets are on sale now, and to get the full run down of the line-up go here.
