AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin City Limits Music Festival announced Wednesday 80s rock band Duran Duran has been added to the Sunday lineup for both weekends.

Duran Duran’s addition comes after the festival made several lineup changes Tuesday, including a new headliner for the Sunday shows.

On Tuesday, ACL said on social media the lineup will now include rapper Tyler, The Creator. This addition comes after ACL scrubbed DaBaby from its list of performers. The hip-hop artist lost his performance slots in Austin after making homophobic remarks at another festival earlier this month.

In addition to DaBaby’s departure, Stevie Nicks will also no longer be performing. Nicks said in a Twitter post that she canceled all five of her shows this year, citing concerns for her health as the delta variant of the coronavirus surges across the country.

“While I’m vaccinated, at my age, I am still being extremely cautious and for that reason have decided to skip the 5 performances I had planned for 2021,” Nicks wrote.

Festival organizers promised on Twitter more lineup additions are coming soon to fill in the gaps.

ACL will also share the exact times that Tyler, The Creator will perform soon.

Tyler, The Creator, whose real name is Tyler Okonma, won best rap album at the Grammys in 2020 for his album “IGOR.” He released another album called “CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST” this year, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts.

Tickets for both weekends of this year’s festival sold out in May in less than three hours, which organizers said happened in record time.
