Phish to Compete with The Strokes at ACL
Austin City Limits Music Festival has confirmed its daily schedules. As previously reported, the multi-band event will take place in Austin, TX from October 8-10. Several of the festival’s headliners will play at the same time, including Phish and The Strokes on Friday, October 8 and Muse and M.I.A. on Saturday, October 9. As of press time, the only act that will playwith no competition is The Eagles, who will close the event from 8-10 PM on Sunday, October 10.
Readers planning to plop themselves down in front of the Budweiser stage all Friday to secure a good spot for Phish will be treated to performances by JJ Grey & Mofro, The Mountain Goats, Broken Bells and Slightly Stoopid. Vampire Weekend drummer Christopher Tomson, who has consistently worn a Phish t-shirt onstage and TV, is also in luck: his band’s set on the American Express stage ends just as Phish’s set begins.
