Radiohead, Kendrick Lamar and Mumford & Sons top the diverse bill, which also includes the recently-reunited LCD Soundsystem, current country music gorilla Chris Stapleton, country music legend Willie Nelson, the ladies of HAIM, electronica collective Major Lazer, and more.
It’s the first appearance for Mumford & Sons and Radiohead at the festival, which takes place across two consecutive weekends – September 30-October 2, and October 7-9 – at Austin’s Zilker Park. More than 130 bands will play on a total of eight stages during the the festival .
In anticipatation of the crowds and in response to feedback from past attendees, organizers say they’ve taken numerous steps to make this year’s festival a better experience for all, including more water stations and improved concessions and shopping, a family entrance and shaded “Austin Kiddle Limits”area, and adjusted stage placement for better sound and crowd control.
