    Why do you have Radiohead on the 2012 line-up?

    • February 7, 2012

      Chief Junkie

      Small confusion on our end. Radiohead is scheduled to play the Austin City Limits Concert Series, not the festival (at least not yet). Thanks for the heads up!

    No problem, I was asking because I thought you might have some inside info or something. I hope they come to ACL!

      ACL has not released a 2012 lineup yet even though early bird tickets have already sold out. However, rumors are flowing and encouraged! Soon my friends we shall know.

    Lynn

    Thanks for your reply. Let me know where I can go to see rumors! I can’t WAIT!!!

    Will Pimp C make an appearance?

    Guy

    This is C3’s cash cow. They don’t announce the lineup until after ALL tickets have gone on sale. And it will sell out within 2 hours (or sooner). So we must hope that C3 delivers. And for the most part, they do.

    When (or around when) will the general admission passes be on sale?

  • May 6, 2012

    Chica

    Day Passes usually go on sale about a week after the 3-day passes do. Which is usually the day off or the day after the lineup is released.

    Sold out? Ive never gone, is it too late to get tickets? Absolutely no way?

  • May 30, 2012

    Katelyn

    Do people usually go to a campsite nearby to camp? If so, which one / how long of a walk/bikebus/car ride away is it?

  • July 14, 2012

    Erika

    Is there anyway to see which bands play on which day? Want to see Civil Wars and Sunday tickets are on sale, but I don’t know if Civil Wars are even playing that day?
