Red Hot Chili Peppers will be headlining this year’s Austin City Limits Music Festival, set to take place over two weekends this fall — Oct. 6-8 and Oct. 13-15. Royal Blood, Missio, The Revivalists and The Killers are just some of the names joining RHCP as part of lineup, which also includes pop star Solange, rapper Ice Cube and singer/songwriter Ryan Adams. The festival will deliver more than 140 bands across eight stages at Zilker Park in Austin, Texas.

This year’s eclectic collection of talent is also set to showcase reunited rock act Live and Eagles of Death Metal, the latter who will be performing only on the second weekend. Similarly, Royal Blood will only be playing the first weekend of the festival. The longstanding tradition at ACL Fest to honor homegrown talent will continue, with Texas-based Missio and The Black Angels among the local favorites playing the festival.

Three day general admission tickets for both weekends go on sale today at 10AM CT at Three day VIP and platinum tickets and hotel packages will also be available. Music fans ages 10 and under will be admitted free of charge accompanied by a ticketed adult. Single day general admission, VIP and platinum tickets will be available later in the year.

Austin City Limits Music Festival has called Zilker Park home for 16 years, and in 2017, the Austin Parks Foundation is celebrating Zilker 100, the centennial anniversary of the green space. For more than a decade, proceeds from ACL Festival have gone directly towards improving the city’s parks. This week, ACL Fest announced $6.3 million in funding to Austin Parks, making the total contribution to improvements to Zilker Park and parks across the city more than $26 million since 2006.

And if you can’t make it to Zilker Park, the Austin City Limits Music Festival Live Broadcast on Red Bull TV, which is distributed digitally for free on any connected device. The Live Broadcast can also be viewed on the ACL Fest website. A full broadcast schedule of performances will be announced in October.
