thanks, mom.

Are we sure this will happen at midnight?

Anonymous said...

YES. Check the acl website...

www.aclfest.com

Do you really think they would tell us it would be release at 12:01 am Thursday if it weren't true?

Especially with the rabidness of ACL fans????

9 hours!!!

they will sell one day passes eventually right? i can't remember what month they come out....anyone remember? thanks in advance

Anonymous said...

maybe its just a marketing ploy, but acl is saying they will sell 1-day passes only if the 3-days dont sell out. but they havent said how long they'll wait to make the decision.

Lineup will not be posted at midnight. Just a hunch.

Anonymous said...

It even says 12:01 at aclfest.com

Dumpy said...

it's raining in austin right now so that might slow down the information release. information doesn't like rain. also it'll make the internet wires heavy and unable to transmit information. heavy, man, heavyyyy.....

Josh said...

Instead of a concert lineup, it will be a Austin police lineup to help solve crimes.

Anonymous said...

The website says 12:01. They are not going to miss it. And by the way, I'm in NYC and I still don't have the lineup....but i hope it includes CYHSY, Feist, Arcade Fire, and Of Montreal.

It's a great list (much better than last year)...but I'm disappointed because there wasn't a gigantic suprise like I thought there was going to be....Everybody guess Bob Dylan from the very beginning. Meh.

I don't understand why "everybody who knew the list in advance" was like TICKETS WILL SELL OUT AS SOON AS THE LINEUP IS REALEASED!!!!1111!!!!!11 and thought that it was going to be MAJOR surprise...

The 2nd tier acts are much, much better than last year, Bjork is an interesting twist (will stick around for her), but Bob Dylan I could take or lose...it's just not the same as seeing him years ago. I guess he's better than Tom Petty...

I should be complaining, it's a great list...I just wanted a ridiculous surprise!

bob dylan better play like a rolling stone first so we can leave his grumpy ass early

Malone said...

Kings of Leon

I think the confirmation came during SXSW.

No doubt, they were probably booked. Remember that bands drop out along the way. Something probably came up.

Lest we forget, Muse was not on the original schedule last year, other bands on the original '06 list cancelled. The schedule released tonight will probably have a minor change or two before September.

You people are all dumbasses. This lineup is awesome, and you'd bitch even if Radiohead were here. Be thankful we even have something like this in our city.

Anonymous said...

Bjork screeching Army of Me or some other garbage, and Dylan mumbling Highway 61 and/or killing Hendrix's Watchtower. The only thing that can save this lineup would be an appearance of "Soy Bomb".

Queens of the Stone Age, Joss Stone, Arctic Monkeys, My Morning Jacket, Blue October, Butch Walker, I can go on.... I guess it's Clerasil fest '07, brought to you by the fine folks at the new Q Morning Zoo, FM 107.7. Really, what the hell? "ACL Fest is not about two huge acts and 128 others," Attal says. No, it's about four huge bands for adults and 124 for 14 year-olds???

Charles Attal - "I think fans are more realistic this year, you should be pretty happy for paying $145." This lineup is worth MAYBE $39.50, service charges included.

I like how the site says "This one is for the history books."

It should go in the book as biggest let down EVER.

Anonymous said...

Here's the surprise: Attal will announce the booking of Glenn Miller's never found corpse. It was a tough get but is really appealing to the demographic he was apparently shooting for this year.

Well they can blow me out of the water when I'm half in the bag and stumble across the MTV music awards. My point is that ACL used to be about getting all the bands that other fests weren't. Now it's this strange analgam of third tier acts from random radio fests.

As long as Crowded House sings the slow version of "Don't Dream It's Over" so I can slow dance with Tiffany Luperella and maybe get to third base, it's worth the $140.

This is such a jip. Jack White was an afternoon side-stage act last year, and this year he's a headliner.

Some jokes aren't as funny after the fact. With a list like this I'd welcome Neil Diamond.

Natalie said...

The only thing I don't like, is that The Killers got listed in big print. They are by far the most overrated band in this line-up. Has anyone else seen them live? They're terrible...Brandon Flowers is anyway. The rest of the line-up looks good to me.

Anonymous said...

With the exception of like 4 bands, a terrible lineup. Bigtime screwjob

Anonymous said...

Some people are whining about it being for geriatrics, and some are whining about it being for tweenie scenesters...

What?

This is a spectacular lineup. There is literally someone on here for EVERYONE. Whereas the headliners last year were very much from the same (great, IMO) pool, this year they're from three distinct music groups, so whatever your taste there's a headliner for you.

Besides, the middle tier is absolutely fantastic this year. Even the Lolla board is saying we trumped them in respect to the top half of the lineup.

Geez yall. Just chill. It's all good.

Anonymous said...

lolla's lineup is vastly superior...wicked screwjob

Anonymous said...

Okay, here's some balance. When I saw the Lollapalooza lineup this year, I thought it was unbelievably terrible. I always thought they were able to get good acts, and if the best they could do was Pearl Jam they should be embarassed.

Now, I think the ACL lineup is wonderful. Dylan's old, but a legend, so he's worthy. Bjork is weird/cool (her music is sketchy, but she's interesting) all the others in the top 20 or 30 are solid (which is an understatement). I don't know what y'all complaining about the old folks are talking about. Other than Dylan, who do you see that appeals to geriatrics?

Different strokes...... You losers enjoy the crappy Lollapalooza this year.
