Neil Young, Chili Peppers, Florence & Jack White To Headline Austin City Limits 2012

Check it out! The lineup for Austin City Limits Music Festival 2012 has been announced and it is straight-up SICK. We're talking Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jack White, Florence + the Machine, Iggy & the Stooges and one of Neil Young's select tour dates with Crazy Horse this year. Hell. Yeah.

Festival faves The Black Keys and The Avett Brothers are also slated to play Austin's Zilker Park during the October 12-14 fest, and electronic heavyweights Avicii and Bassnectar have been drafted to bring the dance party to Texas.

Oh yeah, did we mention Weezer, The Roots, The Shins and left-field chart-topper Gotye will also be there? Well, they are. Seriously, it's looking like an incredible weekend—there are so many great artists playing this year's ACL, it would be exhausting to list them all. Check out ACL's festival page for the full lineup and ticket information. And just because we can't help it, here are some of the other acts we're psyched for:

The Civil Wars
Tegan & Sara
Childish Gambino
Two Door Cinema Club
Thievery Corporation
The Afghan Whigs
Alabama Shakes
Kimbra (Hmm, wonder if she'll join Gotye on stage at any point....)
Die Antwoord
Big K.R.I.T
Andrew Bird

Who are you most excited to see? RHCP? Neil Young? Solo Jack White? Florence? Everyone?
