Austin City Limits Announces 2010 Line-up

Posted: May 19th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Articles About Music | Tags: , , , , , , , | 1 Comment »

The line-up for this year’s Austin City Limits Music Festival has finally been an announced.  I’m not gonna lie, I am a little disappointed.  They have still managed to garner a big list of artists that I would love to see, I am pretty underwhelmed by the choice of headliners.  While I have respect for the Eagles and can appreciate their past contributions to the music world, they are not the kind of band that I want to camp out in front of their stage in anticipation all weekend. In fact, if I am able to attend the festival this year, I will probably leave before their set  so I can get back in time to save a vacation day from work.  The Flaming Lips, The Strokes and Phish were all decent choices.   I don’t love either of those groups albums, but I think their performances will be a ton of fun for all in attendance.  While the other two (Muse & M.I.A.) definitely deserve an invite, I think they were pretty poor choices as headliners for festival of this caliber.  While it doesn’t match up to Bonnaroo’s stellar line-up, it is still a pretty great one overall, and well worth the trip if you are able to get your hands on a weekend pass (which I believe are already sold out).

Here is a look at the rest of this year’s line-up.
