Austin City Limits Music Festival announced its 2016 lineup early Thursday morning, with Radiohead, Mumford & Sons, Kendrick Lamar and LCD Soundsystem topping this year's 15th anniversary bill.
Also on the roster for the two-weekend event are M83, HAIM, Chris Stapleton, Willie Nelson, Major Lazer, Flume, ScHoolboy Q, The Chainsmokers, Cage the Elephant, Two Door Cinema Club, LL Cool J, Band of Horses, Cold War Kids, Kacey Musgraves, Anderson .Paak, Nathaniel Ratefliff, Miike Snow, Corinne Bailey Rae, St. Lucia, Jack Garratt and more.
Additionally, the lineup includes Kygo, Local Natives, Foals, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Flying Lotus, The Naked and Famous, DJ Mustard, Saint Motel, Gallant, Crystal Fighters, Raury, Wild Belle, The Wombats and HONNE.
As usual, ACL shares some acts (i.e. Radiohead, LCD Soundsystem) with its sister fest, Lollapalooza in Chicago, which is set for July 28-31. But there's not as much crossover as in some recent years.
