MF DOOM died at 49 years old and following the news of the rapper born Daniel Dumile, many of the musicians and beat makers who MF DOOM inspired paid tribute to MF DOOM. “All u ever needed in hip hop was this record. Sorted. Done. Give it to the fucking aliens,” Flying Lotus tweeted of MF DOOM and Madlib’s Madvillainy LP. “My soul is crushed.” Flying Lotus later remembered MF DOOM with a “Villain’s Farewell” livestream tribute on Twitch.

Radiohead’s Thom Yorke tweeted, “I am so sad to hear MF Doom’s passing, he was a massive inspiration to so many of us, changed things.. for me the way he put words was often shocking in [its] genius, using stream of consciousness in a way I’d never heard before.”

Read tributes below from Flying Lotus, Tyler the Creator and Q-Tip.

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.
