21 Songs to Rock Out to Before Austin City Limits
As far as music festivals go, Austin City Limits flies under the radar. Held in Zilker Park in downtown Austin on two consecutive weekends (the first one kicks off tomorrow), it boasts as good a lineup as Coachella—The Strokes, Florence + the Machine, and Drake are all headlining—but with a pared-down dress code that calls for cowboy boots rather than flower crowns. Basically, the focus is purely on the music—and with good reason. Whether you're gearing up to head down south for the weekend, or are simply awaiting serious FOMO at home while the festivities take over your Instagram feed, here's a playlist to get you acquainted with this year's batch of performers.
