ACL Fest comes clean and reveals a headliner in Facebook Live post

The full Austin City Limits Festival lineup will be revealed Tuesday at 10 a.m., but festival organizers revealed more artists in a Facebook Live post shot at a laundromat on Monday night.

In the video, festival staffers retrieve band t-shirts from a row of tumbling dryers then flash them at the camera. For the most part the tees were from artists who were revealed in a television ad earlier this weekend, but there was one big reveal. Heavy metal titans Metallica will take one of the headline spots at the festival.

As each t-shirt flashed, the comment section exploded with guesses on which artist it belonged to. Savvy viewers said they spotted shirts for Japanese Breakfast and Arctic Monkeys along with these folks who we already knew were coming:

  • David Byrne
  • Sylvan Esso
  • Khalid
  • Residente
  • the National
  • Chvrches
  • Jungle
  • Shakey Graves
  • the Revolution
  • Trampled by Turtles
  • Houndmouth.
