now if they could just reduce the temperature by 10,000

"The lineup of the fourth-annual Austin City Limits Music Festival, set for Sept. 23-25 in Austin, Texas' Zilker Park has been confirmed. Among the more than 130 bands confirmed for the festival's eight stages are Coldplay, Oasis, Jet, Kasabian, Franz Ferdinand, Keane, Doves, Death Cab for Cutie, The Bravery, The Arcade Fire, and Wilco.

The full list of bands will be announced tomorrow (Thurs.) The ACL festival is named for the PBS mainstay Austin City Limits. The festival began in 2002, and attendance grew to more than 70,000 per day in 2004.

In response, producers announced this year that they would reduce capacity by 10,000 daily to make for a better fan experience. The capacity reduction will affect ticket prices, but three-day passes started out at $85 on April 15 will still top out at $95 once the bands are announced. "Our ticket sales are ahead of schedule," Jones says. "Before we released band one, we sold 12,000-13,000 three-day passes. I expect when the bands get released, this sucker will sell out within a week."

LET'S GO! TEAM.
