AUSTIN (KXAN) - Austin City Limits Music Festival might be five months away, but the buzz has started. Tuesday at midnight the lineup of bands for the 2013 festival will be posted online.
Since last week, clues have been popping up around Austin about performers, with groups like The Cure, Muse and Fun announcing they were coming.
Monday, music lovers found some of the latest clues at a local pizza joint. Austin's Pizza is the latest to give out some hints as to who will be playing at ACL in the fall.
Employees there were stamping each pizza box with stickers, revealing yet two more bands on the line-up: GROUPLOVE and Local Natives.
More than 60 boxes at Austin's Pizza's Guadalupe Street location were markedm and hungry music fans are eating up the anticipation.
"They always surprise us with new artists and new bands; one's that you've heard and ones that you haven't," said Sophie Rosales, who's planning on attending this year's festival.
ACL in 2013 will be a new experience. It's two weekends in October instead of one. And no longer can music fans purchase a one-day pass. Only three-day passes for each weekend are available. For some, that's a little less convenient.
"Especially with the two different weekends, I would likely buy a one-day pass, and have one for each weekend," said Mac McMann.
For now, fans are waiting, to feast their eyes on the lineup. And they're looking forward to one, or two, of the biggest weekends in Austin.
"It's more than just the music. It's really the whole experience," said music fan Carrie Crooks. "It's just Austin in three days, and soon to be six days."
C3 Presents, the producers of ACL, say they did away with the one day passes because demand for three-day passes was so high, and more and more people were buying multiple single-day tickets.
Three-day passes will be on sale Tuesday starting at 10:00 a.m.
