If you’re not sure what ACL is yet, you’ve most likely been living under a rock or only recently discovered the existence of popular music.

Originally a three-day festival, the event held in Austin’s Zilker Park has evolved into a two-weekend affair that mixes rock, indie electronic, hip-hop, EDM and R&B. Heavy hitters Metallica, Radiohead and Jay-Z have headlined in the past.

This year, Childish Gambino (who was slated to play last year but cancelled because of a foot injury), Guns ’N’ Roses, The Cure, Lizzo and weirdo popstress Billie Eilish are all rocking sets.

$255-$3600, Friday, Oct. 4-Sunday, Oct. 6, 11 a.m., 2100 Barton Springs Road, Austin, (888) 512-SHOW,
