Holy shit! It's that time again, folks. The Austin City Limits Festival, now in its 15th year, has released their lineup. Unlike many of the nation's competing festivals which seem to cater to an exclusive crowd (Jimmy Kimmel's punking of Coachella-visiting millennials comes to mind), ACL has consistently attempted to provide a little something for everyone. From the computer glitch dance pop of Radiohead to bounce-inspiring Major Lazer to country's old school, Willie Nelson, and the new, Chris Stapleton.

Tickets for the three-day fest, which takes place over two-weekends (September 30-October 2 and October 7-9) in Zilker Park, are priced from $100 for a single day to $255 for general admission for all three days. VIP and platinum passes go for $450/day, $1,100 for all three days (VIP) and $3,600 for all three days (platinum) and can be purchased through

Below is the full lineup.
