In its twelfth year, Austin City Limits has proven itself to be so much more than South By Southwest's little sister. Hundreds of acts have flocked to the Texas town's Zilker Park for two weekends of sunshine and live music! With a selection as diverse and all-encompassing as ACL's lineup, making a decision of who to see and when can be tough. Don't fret! We've got you covered.

This year, EminemSkrillexLordeOutkastPearl Jam and more headline the fest, and they're joined by the likes of ChvrchesIcona PopCapital CitiesIggy AzaleaMajor LazerZeddThe Avett Brothers...the list goes on and on and covers pretty much every genre. Check out this list of our favorite picks from the ACL Fest lineup!

#1The Replacements

ACL Fest makes it a point to book a few "legacy" acts now and then. There's value in remembering music's history, after all! But let's face it, watching a bunch of old farts attempt decades-old guitar solos can be really effin' boring. The Replacements are anything but. Reunions can read like cheap money-grubbing attempts to pull at music fans' heart-strings, but this legendary Minneapolis band is truly in it for the memories, both new and old. If it's classic Midwest indie punk you're after, you've found it. (Oh, and Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong swears by them!)
