The two prior weekends of ACL Fest will include over 130 acts to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the festival. Nelson will be joined by Chris Stapleton, Radiohead, Mumford & Sons, Kendrick Lamar and LCD Soundsystem.
To round out ACL’s massive year, the documentary A Song for You about the storied concert series will debut this year. Artists like Beck, Dave Grohl, Jenny Lewis, Bonnie Raitt, Jeff Tweedy, Alabama Shakes, Florence and the Machine and Sturgill Simpson participated in the documentary, offering their recollections of their experiences with the series over the years.
“It was more than just one song at the end of The Tonight Show,” Dave Grohl recalled in a recently premiered clip from the film. “It was an ensemble performance that went on for more than six minutes, and I really liked that a lot. It was that kind of thing that inspired me to want to play with other people.”
