After taking last year off and almost getting replaced by a Vanilla Ice concert, Austin City Limits is returning to Zilker Park in Austin, Texas this fall. ACL will take place over two weekends, 10/1-10/3 and 10/8-10/10, and organizers have just announced the 2021 festival’s lineup. Headlining the shows in October are George Strait, Billie Eilish, Stevie Nicks, Miley Cirus, Rufus Du Sol, Dababy and Erykah Badu.

“Music is coming back strong to the Live Music Capital of the World,” says Austin Mayor Steve Adler. “The return of Austin City Limits as an in-person festival celebrates that our efforts as a community to become vaccinated are working. Health and safety remain our top priority, and we will work closely with the organizers and Austin Public Health to ensure ACL Fest is in line with our health standards. We must continue to get everyone vaccinated and keep up our success.”

As the Austin City Limits music festival prepares for a big comeback after a 2020 COVID-19 cancellation, tickets are on sale for both weekends (October 1-3 and 8-10) now.

The festival’s cancellation, according to a 2019 study, presented a blow to Austin’s economy, as the event brought almost $1.5 billion to the area that year. The cancellation also came months after Austin’s other iconic music festival, South By Southwest, made the decision to cancel for the first time in its 34-year history.

San Francisco’s Outside Lands has locked in its 2021 lineup on the same day it canceled its 2020 edition back in June. However, the lineup has now been tweaked a bit as the music festival has rescheduled for a little later in the year, now happening Halloween weekend (October 29-31) in Golden Gate Park. It was originally set for early August.

The 2021 lineup includes headliners Tame Impala, Lizzo and The Strokes, plus Tyler, the Creator, Vampire Weekend, J Balvin, Young Thug, Kaytranada, Khruangbin, Nelly, Glass Animals, Brittany Howard, Burna Boy, Angel Olsen, Sharon Van Etten, Flo Milli, JPEGMAFIA, Moses Sumney, Yves Tumor, Bartees Strange and more.

Outside Lands’ previously billed performers The 1975, Beach House, Polo & Pan, Big Thief, Parcels, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, The Beths, and others won’t make the transition to the new dates.

“We have been eagerly anticipating our return to Golden Gate Park for over a year now and although we have to wait a few months longer, we couldn’t be more excited to present an epic Halloween edition of Outside Lands,” said Allen Scott, President of Concerts & Festivals at Another Planet Entertainment and Co-Producer of Outside Lands, in a statement. “The shift in dates allows us to work collectively to determine any new safety measures necessary to implement during the festival weekend. We ask fans to use this time before the festival to continue exercising common sense COVID safety practices and we look forward to being together again soon.”

Tickets are on sale now via the Outside Lands website. All previously purchased passes will be honored for the new dates, and those unable to attend can seek a refund up until April 17th.

Outside Lands joins the list of events hoping to return after a pandemic year. Life Is Beautiful, III Points, Louder Than Life, and Welcome to Rockville have announced plans to hold events this year, while Bonnaroo has tentatively been postponed until September. Coachella has also been postponed, though no new dates have been revealed.
