Austin City Limits 2018 Lineup: St. Vincent, Paul McCartney, Metallica & More
GRAMMY winners Childish Gambino, Paul McCartney and Metallica lead the headliner lineup for this fall's Austin City Limits Music Festival at Zilker Park, which will take place over the weekends of Oct. 5–7 and 12–14.
The Recording Academy was on-site for ACL 2017 — based on last year, festivalgoers this fall are sure to be grateful for the incredible musical selection. Other GRAMMY winners set to perform at the 2018 installment are David Byrne, Justice and St. Vincent. Recently, St. Vincent gave the Crystals' classic "Then He Kissed Me" a same-sex twist for the LGBTQ-affirmative album Universal Love — Wedding Songs Reimagined, in the form of "And Then She Kissed Me."
Past GRAMMY nominees on the lineup include Arctic Monkeys, Brandi Carlile, Sylvan Esso, Father John Misty, Highly Suspect, Hozier, Khalid, Janelle Monáe, Odesza, and Travis Scott. Janelle Monáe's latest album Dirty Computer just dropped April 27, and Father John Misty let it be known last month his latest LP is expected on June 1.
Several artists appear on the first or second weekend, only, including Asleep At The Wheel, the Austin-based band with eight GRAMMYs who will perform during the first weekend. Tickets are now on sale at the ACL Festival website.
