The Full Scoop on ACL Weekend 2: Here to Save You From Weekend FOMO!

Written by on September 27, 2022

If you are at all familiar with the iconic Austin City Limits Music Festival, then you should already know by now that this year’s ACL Weekend 1 is taking place on October 7–9th, 2022. The lineup is packed with household-name performers as well as features from local bands, paired with tasty food vendors and activities available for people of all ages, taking place in the heart of downtown Austin, TX at Zilker Park.

If you are unable to attend ACL Weekend 1, do not fret, as Austin City Limits Festival breaks their program into two different weekends because there is too much fun to fit into just one, with ACL Weekend 2 on October 14–16th, 2022 in the same location.

Both weekends have a festival lineup consisting of performances taking place across nine stages from Grammy award-winning headliners such as country music stars The Chicks and Kacey Musgraves, DJ and producers Diplo and Flume, pop idol P!nk, R&B singer SZA, rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers, rapper and singer Lil Nas X and so many more!

Other talented big names you can expect to see take the limelight across the stage exclusively during ACL Weekend 2 are indie performances by Phoenix, as well as American rock band groups such as Death Cab For Cutie and The Front Bottoms, alternative music artists including Sloppy Jane and Vacations, rap performances from Princess Nokia and pop rhythm-and-blues by Tai Verdes, including plenty more!

Some personal favorites I can faithfully recommend to be on the lookout for are from indie pop groups such as Japanese Breakfast and The Marias, alternative bands Paramore and Wallows, bedroom pop-star Pinkpantheress, indie singer-songwriter Faye Webster and hip-hop/rap artist Genesis Owusu, all whom I’ve had the privilege to witness their outstanding performances in the past and am sure will all continue to bring the same energy to the ACL stage.
