Here's What to Expect at the First Weekend of ACL

Metallica is headed back to Texas to headline ACL, which is actually sort of weird and awesome since most of ACL’s headliners recently have been the likes of Radiohead, Jay-Z and Willie Nelson – not gigantic metal acts. If you’ve seen Metallica in recent years you’d probably be stoked too since they usually play very few new songs and a shit ton of their old work, which rules if you’re like us and don’t really listen to anything past the Black album. Besides Metallica, the rest of the headliners include Paul McCartney, Arctic Monkeys, Travis Scott and Odesza. The full lineup is actually shaping up to be fantastic, too, with St. Vincent, Janelle Monáe and David Byrne slated for appearances.

$100-$3600, Fri Oct 5-Sun Oct 7, Zilker Park, 2100 Barton Springs Road, Austin, aclfestival.com.
